Wet Feet

 "I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly" (Jesus)
~John 10:10


by Leona Choy 

How can I say
I have experienced The Ocean
when only my feet are wet?

Sand between my toes
I slosh about
in the shallows.
Have I no regret
that I haven't tasted yet
the midstream ecstasy
with its current pull
and deep euphoria?

Shallow is safe?
Deep is dangerous?
Oh! The false premise
of humdrum humanity!

I could miss
The Great Everything
by bartering it
for little nothings
safe sedatives
that chain me
to the shore
eroding, consuming
my days, my years
risk free, yes
but with a phony guarantee
while I am lulled
into insensitivity
with my feet only
ankle deep
in The Fathomless Ocean
of Life.
