My World Underwater

As I drift weightlessly through the coral heads, my minds clears
Itself of the worries of my world.

Peace and quiet at lastwith no sound to heard but my
Own breathing. My eyes are filled with all the rainbow colors
The ocean offers.

The prism of colors of the fish shine as they dart back and forth in as
Much wonder of me as I am of them.

Brilliant blue sea stars cling to coral.
Small puffs of sand rise in the water around a spotted moray eel poking
His head out of a crevice in the rocks to watch me as I pass by.

A Southern stingray floats gently like a hovering flying saucer along the


Barely disturbing the sand with his fluttering wings as he looks for his
next meal.

The long, silent shadow of a Caribbean reef shark can be seen eerily in
Slowly, methodically his tail sways through the water.

These are the pleasures my world underwater bring me
These are the memories I take home.
