Sea of Silence

Sea of Silence

Into a sea of silence
I plunge…

Hidden depths—
I sink deeper and deeper.

Beds of coral reefs
of infinite colors…
schools of fish
sleek by—
I wonder who
is truly looking
at whom.

Down, down I go
and still no bottom.

I hear the sounds
of the underworld
as my lungs fill
with breath—a gentle inhale
and I continue
my descent.

Lighter and lighter
I’m becoming—
letting-go of the

there is nothing
to SEE,
but my eyes
take in

Slowly, I exhale
and I’m lifted
by the bubbles
rising overhead.
