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.
