the element of surprise

If you are water, then I am water

flowing in and out of reality

concurrently and in perfect synchronicity

the way only water knows how,

possessing the ability to both create

and destroy, and to share in silence

unsaid words that speak in smiles and songs

like sacred secrets that arrive

delightfully engulfed in an aura of mystery

and magic.

You are you and have your borders

but I wash in and dissolve the barriers you built out of sand

and we become an infinite body of water with no beginning or end,

a bubble of energy that vibrates in each crashing wave that meets the shore

where we sit, with eyes open wide,

in wonder of all the beauty in life

and the endless surprises total strangers have the chance to live

if they pay attention

to all the potential

in the unplanned.
