a crystal blue void

encompasses my


billowing clouds of sparkling bubbles

rush by as I descend


sound is muted


clarity is lost

curious fish dart in and out

playing in silent schools

oblivious to time's remorseless march


blurred shades of green and brown

above and around

an ochre and tan sandy expanse


dotted with wavering isles of sunlit promise

irridescently ghost-like

beneath the surface


the current shifts and I spread my arms wide

encompassing eternity

my eyes seek out the Light

straining to see beyond the distant haze


surface memories echo

life and pain 

heartache and despair

shrouded by oceanic memories of

missed chances and wasted time

of love lost and 

hope broken by

setbacks and betrayal




sorrow and weariness combine

in the depths

combating energy and innovation

cultivating self-pity

motivating melancholy

memories of moments lost


slivers of seaweed slither

sliding across skin

scenes of ephemeral delight

shimmering softly

soon passed


sadly so  


heartrending and visceral

breath bursts forth from my chest


constrained no more


descent continues

starbursts expand as darkness beckons

and I rise again still seeking the Light

that lies beyond the looming night

on the other side of life

beyond all human

A cool and fluid stream of intellectual, emotional, and spiritual lucidity. CRYSTAL BLUE shines both as a work of art and as a gift from the soul.
Reviewed by Missy Cross 7/21/2006
the tides of this piece are as powerful as the ocean, absorbing and reflecting soul as strongly as a calm sea does the sun. Beautifully done!
