Iltur waveslight on the sea in late afternoon
ribbons of sparkles
on the surface
of larger waves but
also the moving texture
of smaller waves
within and skimming the
surface of the

glittering, sparkling
flickering lights, diamonds,
white gems and stars
floating on a deep dark
blue blue constantly
shifting mesmerizing
flowing seascape

breathless immersion
Ilica one wave

clear cold refreshing
quenching jolting
clenching avoiding
but inching deeper
further in each step
bringing the chilling
thrilling cold
higher and tenser
no more hesitation —
plunge and release
embrace the free fall,
the rush of
breathless chilling immersion
