this moment is beautiful,
awestruck before us.
we capture the memory
even as we watch it shatter,
our reflections broken in the ripples.
and it doesn't feel like this
was made to last
but i take a breath
and plunge into the peaceful waters -
because when this moment is gone,
i will only regret
not allowing myself to feel it.
not being submersed in these wild waters -
that will either fill me with exhilaration
or take me down.
