Let’s live beyond surviving
by raising these lowered chins;
God’s spiritual abundance creates vast thriving
as more than a passing whim!
One favored reason for my joy
springing from an enchantment within,
is my all-time favorite venture:
a fun’tastic exhilarating swim!
Immersed in a cocoon of liquid silk,
I drift throughout a warm concave of safety
among sunlit crystals and rainbow shadows.
Inhabited by buttery-yellow and icy-blue wings,
sugary melodies intoxicate lush green surroundings.
And from the belly of surviving,
I have been reborn into God’s womb of thriving!
P.S. – I wrote this poem while I was six feet under water.
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
