I float above the waves that roll, the wind carries me and I lose control.
Flying high, above the sea, playful creatures below somersault and taunt me.
I dip my head and dive, arms stretched out in front, to pierce the icy surface and thrive.
Air pockets surround, am swarmed by grays’, my lungs begin to burn I fear I’ve drowned.
Am carried up towards the top, breaking through I take my fill to chuff a mighty blow and stop.
My newly formed tail pushes through, water torn I find myself streaming along.
I rise into the air again, a porpoise am reborn.
The ocean vast and clear, frolicking with whistles and clicks, now words to my ear.
With every rise I fly, taking in air to breathe, sleek and shinny my skin gleams, I scream, bonsai!
With my fill of air, I sink below to a world unknown, where I now live free, under the sea.
Elements, they inspire. One in particular is the mystery of the Sea. Ms Dana who I’m sure you know of and if you are not following this Lady, please do, you will be enchanted, as I am.
Please go to original, like and say hello to Dana
It was morning when I woke
I spoke but nothing said
It seemed as though life had ceased
East was not where the sun had risen
No birds singing
All were missing
The air so still I can see it clear
My feet carry me from here to there
Soundless pounding on wooden floor
Stomp as I might towards the door
I find myself on gardens path
Drops of rain begin to fall
Not one touches me at all
My eyes amazed I gaze
The rain falls from a cloudless sky
The silence piercing buzzing in my head
Hold a conch shell to my ear
That’s exactly what I hear
It’s like the sea is calling me
Taunting sounds I do not fear
Before my eyes blink
I do, into murky waters neck deep
As waves roll high
Salty seawater my tongue does taste
The undertow begins to pull as I float away
Beneath the surface black as night
A vision appears from the deep
With hair so red it shines bright
Flesh of pearl with emerald scales
Fish tail propels into sight
Behold, a little mermaid played
“Take my hand”…voiceless from her lips
Of your own accord you must do
Compelled I reach to hold
As I do she breathes into me
Air as cold as ice my lungs fill
Fathoms deep we drop, blackness from the top
Yet colors strike my eyes
A rainbow of coral hues
Layer upon layer a Disney dream come true
A castle without gates
Inviting cheers from those who wait
Faces from the past with smiles and waves they cast
I know them all yet never met
Home at last
Back to the sea
Where we evolved to be
