The Ocean

Innocence

Cradle, cleansing mother,
Rocking me to health,
Swaying silvery fins
Through green lighted water,
Welcoming warm world.

Experience

Rip-current rivers
Hidden in peaceful waves
Sudden teeth, stinging wires
Hanging long down treachery,
Deceitful dream of weightlessness.

Still I long for the water.
