Student Spotlight: Ritual

She dips into the blue

The cold dissolving her toes and feet before

she loses herself

Purity gathering around dry and prickly flesh


to her thighs 

she lowers herself

Skin embracing a cooling darkness against 

gentle currents

Here at the rocks edge

cracked bones relax

 limbs at ease

She wades towards the weary sunset.
