Floating on the ocean blue

With my snorkel in the air

Reveling in all that’s new

Right beneath me way down there

 

I take a breath and dive deep

My bubbles float above me

Near barracuda I creep

They are much bigger than me

 

Back to the surface I swim

To take in some more fresh air

Them back below on a whim

Trying so hard not to scare

 

Looking close I spot an eel

Bright green with a gaping mouth

I wonder how soft he’d feel

As he wriggles his way south

 

Buoyed by the open sea

Effortlessly I float near

A bunch of anemone

With a clown fish swimming near

 

Startled by a silver light

I see a school of permit

Hovering over coral

I spy a crabby hermit

 

The sun is slowly setting

It is time for us to go

I thank the sea for letting

Us share in it’s water show

I've done a little snorkeling, but not much. Wish I could do more. Thanks for sharing a bit of the ocean with us.

Peace,
Dayvid
