Tide Together

Under the surface
they flounder
in the murk,
pulled down through
dark lapping,
lost in the churn.

But a sudden
upward thrust
breaks the mirror.
Gasping, a
bright emergence into
damp confusion.

Now, clinging to
each other,
limpet-fingered,
it breaks over them, but
they do not
slip underneath.

Battered,
yet buoyant,
the cold swirl
cannot touch
them now.
