2021: Hour Ten – Lost at Sea

Stranded far from the reaches of everything familiar
Solid land to stand on not seen for days

The moon has abandoned me
Darkened skies leave space for stars and planets
to send their distant light to meet my eyes
reflected on the surface of the water

The difference between sea and sky obscured
lights dance on the sky and the the water
is it bioluminescence of sea creature below
or charged particles dancing on the atmosphere

The velvet darkness, a palette for the speckled light
surrounding me in the stillest of seas 

Enveloped and dazzled, I slip into a reverie
of distant mysteries layered on the hidden depths of the sea
