First it was the snorkel
and then the mask
that took me below the water’s

where the silence of the sea
coral, fishes and sea anomie
floated in quiet harmony

Along the bottom
I saw things
I had read about
and like a dream
I floated in

short little trips
before I was through

needing air
I returned to
where oxygen
was plentiful

I'll need better
equipment so
I can stay longer

Now I take tanks
and go down,
wearing a body suit
to control
the temperature,

a camera,
some lights,
so I can stay

The sound of my breath,
a comfort,
deep in this
world beneath the sea.
