crossing over

submersed in the deep blue ocean

i so long to be-

to live among the coral reef

the sand  the rock  the sea

the endless shift in atmosphere

the in and out of tide

a shark or dolphin swim right past

to stare me in the eye;

and i, like tiny bubbles,

let go of my fear and rise-

up to the surface, satisfied

that there is always an “other” side.
