shallows

come swim in my shallows
immerse yourself in me
swim in the essence of my mind
the essence of my heart
tide pools of pleasure
wading pools of love

but mistake not
what you see and feel
as the all of me
time is needed to find my depths
time and patience without which
much is missed and much is lost
haste will waste ineffable moments
and make of me appearance of a fool

hidden depths are slowly uncovered
deep-seated emotions unfurl in gentle flows
follow the slipstream of me
to unfathomable depths
deep dynamics deeper joys
but only to one who dares

abandon the shallows
come join me in my depths
leave behind all thought of surface joys
seek with me the hidden treasure
the inwardness of me
