Caught in a Rip

by Ch'erie



Caught in a rip
with an incoming tide
tossed about like a lost buoy

upon a sea of fierce indiscretion

Foaming and frothing
waves lapping all around
finding their way into lungs

that were happy to be drowned

Fight or flight responses
lulled by an influx of warm salty water
on it's way to the stable shoreline

but, all in good time!

Rolling gently amid the caressing waves
head o'er heels, without direction
only sense of up is the flow of bubbles

When the submerged is ready to surface!

Great descriptive writing, really makes the reader feel the tossing and bobbing and weaving of water. Well-written.

Ch'erie, I think we all know the feeling. Sometimes it seems to last forever, but though it sounds trite"This too shall Pass" We can only hope it does soon! Take care...ET

Got caught in a rip off of Playa del Carmen - happily splashing about in the ocean, all of a sudden, I'm being taken out to sea - my girlfriend's like, "Where are you going?!?!" I told her I'd be back - started swimming parallel to the beach, got out of the rip and decided that was enough playing in the water - don't panic, is the only advice I can give, that, and swim parallel to the beach - you'll get out eventually. =] Excellent write, Chazza.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

This one brought on a sad memory for some areas of Nova Scotia like Australia are noted for it's often dangerous rip tides. I lost a friend of mine who was scuba diving to one when I was only a teenager and his body was never recovered. great write Cherry Pie.
