Why I Float

I float to let go.

I float to discover.

I float to meditate.

I float to observe.

I float to be weightless.

I float to be quiet.

I float to be still.

I float to be ME.

I float to just BE.

Blank may seem useless
Blank may seem a void
Blank may seem to be nothingness

Yet a blank space
is essential in written words,
essential between notes in music.

How healing, nurturing and self-loving
to receive a blank
in the midst of my day, my life.

I cherish the gap between my breath
and the silent darkness
as in the womb. . . 
floating, loved and carefree.
