Beneath the surface, I’m encircled
In sparkling specks of wonder.
Filtered light, made gentle by the depths,
Form sunset colors down under.
I plunge from a world of land and sky,
To one where scattered waters rave.
And am forever free to experience the mystery
That lies within placid waves.
A rush of sinuous fish stream by,
Moving united in thought.
Wavering reflections overhead are illusive,
Reflecting what is and what is not.
A little deeper and I lose the light,
Now one with the enchanted surround.
Here surf and tide rule over mind,
With every wave infinitely bound.
