Of the sea

Sliding in slowly
cool water moves up
slight chill brings a smile
a small laugh
becoming one
with the blue.
Submerged in aqua shades
shimmering in the sun above
eyes adjust to view,
ears to sound distorted,
alone in my thought.
I move along exploring
the bottom endless,
to the edge so very far
I find the solitary silence
enveloping me like a child
in the invisible hold
of the earths watery womb,
I rise to the sun above
head to the sky
eyes open wide
for air to live
I inhale and exhale
refreshed.

I ventured into the pool yesterday in the glorious sun high above, being a mermaid in my mind. There is clear beautiful ocean here, yet I fear that which I cannot see around me….sharks mostly…so pool it is.
