Last night I dreamed a memory; a rare thing.
We were swimming in warm, clear Northland waters near Matauri Bay.
We were nude, save for mask and snorkel.
Dappled light rippled over your form; floating, freed from gravity.
I was thinking you were the most beautiful thing I have ever seen;
Within the water or without.
Then you swam away.
I awoke: salt sea pooling on my pillow.
