diving down through black water to find the pearl
a glowing bit of heaven, lost and sorrowing over it's fall to earth
and yet in it's circular shape,
it is filled with a beautiful silkiness, a softness as if just born.
diving down through black water, my soul is the light that guides me.
through the black water, i see nothing, but i know there is more, i know
below there will be the beauty of the sea.....the etchings of lacelike corral, the color
of radiant starfish laying as if asleep on ancient stones
and the silence of gentle seahorses
waiting for the current to carry them along.
