I WET MY FEET AND COOL DOWN / Poem by Maria Dulce Leitao Reis

 
Poem by Maria Dulce Leitao Reis
 
 
I WET MY FEET AND COOL DOWN
 
I feel your breath
In the stillness of my core,
synchronized
with the moan of seagulls
looking for food
on the waves of the sea.
I let the sound of the surf
kiss my ears,
to muffle the birds’ moan
 
I don’t understand
the reason for the moaning…
 
Pain?
Attracting sympathy?
Expressing pleasure?
whatever it is, it confuses me
generates stress and makes me ache.
 
I don’t understand
the reason for the moaning
That’s why I shudder.
 
I love the sea with passion
It washes my soul
calms my heart
soothes my libido.
 
I wet my feet and cool down!
