Finding Atlantis

could be like that
and what are my musings

mere comfort or beauty
when only once in ages
the waters recede

and it is there: strong, entire
drought’s child and ancestor

have I skimmed over
this power for years, fragile-
boated, unaware?

Thanks to Colossal for this appealing story of a submerged/emerging church in Mexico.
