A Dream In Water

I had a dream⁣

Of wearing a sundress ⁣

Where I walked on sand⁣

Barefoot ⁣

Into the embrace of the ocean⁣

Where the waters parted⁣

So human feet can land and toes can sink in the sands of no-time, no space.⁣

Feeling the sun set on my skin⁣

Enraptured by the feeling of being so close to God⁣

Suddenly I was snatched out of the moment⁣

By shouts and yells⁣

I turned to look back at the shoreline and I could not find the way back any longer⁣

For where there used to be footprints ⁣

Was now engulfed by the seawater.⁣

The water was coming in quick⁣

I was going to sink⁣

And before I could react⁣

The sand funnelled away⁣

And I was taken by the waves⁣

I resurfaced for a breath⁣

And more shouts and yells from the shore⁣

Were calling me to swim⁣

Swim, LiYing, SWIM!⁣


I tried to keep my head above water⁣

I tried to keep my limbs paddling⁣

I could still hear the voices⁣

Until I could hear nothing more ⁣

Because truth be told⁣

I was tired⁣

I was so tired⁣

When can I stop swimming?⁣

When will this end?⁣

What is the whole point of this?⁣

And Tea Spirit said⁣

How long do you think it took for me to be here in this bowl, enlightening you, deepening you?⁣

Very long, I said.⁣

It does not matter how long it takes me ⁣

It may take one second for things to change⁣

It might take me forever⁣

I am here for it.⁣
