Treading water
is easy at first
then the arms tire
soon the legs follow suit
all in an effort
to keep my head above water

What happens
if I stop resisting the water
do I sink to the bottom
never to return or
do I explore depths
never before seen

I was treading water
just the other day
and I stopped
to see what would happen
But I did not sink
to the bottom of the abyss

Instead my body righted itself
my head never submerged
I lay there
fully supported
and in the absence of struggle
I felt the presence of the Divine
