A Meeting Place

by Ali Trotta

Everything I love is this:
the kiss of salt on skin,
the lullaby of seagulls,
the way rain can stop time,
even fathoms below,
everything a mystery
until I break through the surface,
love waiting before me,
stretched between one world
and the next,
mouths drifting
in their own current,
until it’s time
to go home again.
