memories

that moment
when your body
and your instinct
surrender to
the water
trusting it
to keep you
from sinking
and then
the sun hides
behind few clouds
you look up
there is green
blue and
there is grey
ripples conversing
with leaves above
a few flowers
keep you company
you can hear your breath
you float

some memories
keep you
from drowning
hold on to them
