Baptism

The time is right

For running naked

Straight into the lake

A sharp intake of breath

As the cold bites

Drawing the blood

To the surface

While the ripples

Take your thoughts on

A steady outward motion

That slows and diminishes

Until nothing more is seen

All remains concealed

In your fertile mind

Until brought to

The surface again

To bring enlightenment

Freedom and joy

To all who hear your voice

And bow to your wisdom.
