Riptide

Off with his shoes
Soul out to dry – soles left to blister Jogging the hot Kehei sands
Never before has the South Pacific felt so calm and refreshing.
What was once a fear, now a ultimate reward for accomplishment of his late morning task.
Forty-five earned minutes before that last dip of 400 meters
And the salty reminder sweeps him further….
Knee high.
Waist.
A little more.
Laid out to all openness, floating and crashing.
Gently pushed back to do it all over again.
Staying waist deep will only keep him waist deep and less.
Calm and refreshed, he wades out further to the sound of the crashing waves and the ever so subtle pull of the tide – calling him.
Bringing him up and out to sea. Away from comfort into another place.
A place to where he one day will find comfort.
And gently he is again pushed back to do it all again.
Over.
