Vanishing Point – a poem by Cynthia Pitman

Vanishing Point

Safe in the lifeboat
but still leashed to the ship,
I cut the binding rope
so I can float free.
The sky and sea consume me.
I blend into their hues of blue.
No longer afloat,
I sink into the horizon.
Then, born again, I rise over high waters
to the merciful Heaven
that awaits my freed Soul.
I ceil the sky.
I shroud the sea.
Their Holy blues define me
in my grave Divine.
