Your salty kiss lingers on my lips, your twinkling caress on my toes. I leap and twirl while you advance and recede, our forces meeting again after far too long. In your waters the sand glistens and rises, performing its own intricate dances beyond my glance and washing in to join our waltz.
You’ve always intrigued me, Lady Pacifica, and sometimes when I’m far from you you invade my dreams with washes of translucent water that fill my vision and float me into a new world where breath is precious and bubbles fill my vision. Now you call to me and I venture deeper, deeper, and I abandon control and let you tumble me in your dangerous embrace.
