I am every where-

all immersion-

surrounding you;

yet you cannot see me;

my name's unknown

my love unknighted;  

not shown.

I give you my All;

you swim in me

suffused with that joy


is unknown

to even itself.


You come and you go

and I labor in this love

giving birth and to you in this soupy midst;

seeing your dreams small

and large grow tall and fit.

I see them swim away too, too soon;

swim away


I am water

and you are fish.

I then surround you in my dreams at night;

you swimming in your swim-away world

now even more unaware of me.

But your mouth opens and opens again

drinking of me

because my water continues to give you life;

keeps you alive

in the dream world we still share.

Above the water line

is the other world

of boats, steamers and reality


But here below

under my cover,

it is only

you and I

and now only I in the end

since fish you know





its gone.

We are all fish then
unaware at first of dreamy water world

which makes fish possible
sometimes staying;

somtimes swimming away
often falling
gasping upon
rocky shores.

Even then I'll send my waves
to rescure you.
Can't help myself:
oceans have no doors.
