Wonders of the Seventh Sea
Dreaming that I was swimming,
In the turquoise waters of the Coral Reef,
I heard a sinewy voice calling me,
I looked back higher to see clearly,
A big burly character with a cigar in his teeth,
Yelling and laughing and daring me,
To come aboard!
Ahoy mate! Ahoy mate!
Come with me,
To a new dimension – an aquatic fantasy!
Come into the ship and I’ll take you where you
Will never want to leave,
To the deep, deep recesses of the Seventh Sea.
The ship was as large as the girth of the ocean,
It had no stern to guide it and made no motion.
Not disturbed by the encompassing sea,
The ship was covered in silver and diamonds
And gold leaf.
I swam, so excited to travel the tides,
And discover new places on this seafaring ride.
The bow was set and the staff unfurled,
Off we plunged towards unknown worlds.
Ahoy, ship ahoy! As the ocean swirled.
I saw a huge black hole open up in the deep,
And the monstrous ship begin to surge and steep
Into the whirling waters where darkness creeps,
And encompasses the ship.
I could not tell if I were dreaming
But I felt my heart beat.
I was breathing in tandem with the motion of
This watery abyss.
Suddenly, a brilliance of multicolored light,
Consumed the darkness,
Of the most glorious sea creatures,
And ornamental fish.
They pulled me toward them by some invisible force,
And though I never opened my mouth,
They answered every question,
Discourse by discourse.
I was brought clothing so delicate and intricate,
It felt so moist and light!
The food was so heavenly,
I never thought to leave or take flight.
The Captain’s face signaled me it’s time,
To return to the frothy shores,
From my aquatic fantasy, so divine,
But awake I am,
And the dreams no more.
What amazing journeys
Await in the imaginations of my mind!
From ocean to ocean,
Tour to tour..
