Sea Turtle Tour Guide    (Continued)

March 6, 2013

I broke from my trance and
explored my surroundings.
Underwater outcroppings sat so
upon a white sandy bottom
carved from rock and salt
where an abundance of
life stretched on and on
Vivid yellow brain corals
as bright as the sun
and soft as my bed
seemed so much brighter
than the ones in our heads
and great violet fan corals
swayed with the current
as well as the fire coral.
I kept my distance
as its poisonous sting
was a definite deterrent
And if these underwater plants
represented a city
as bright as the stars,
then the plethora of fish
would serve as the cars
and trucks and buses and trains
