"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.” – Jacques Cousteau
Coasting deeper into the shifting play of light, thoughts fade away, fears are left behind
A rush of sinuous fish stream by, moving united in thought
Chromis viridis glitter like stars in the sky, focused yet indifferent...
"It's really when one stops thinking about oneself and become oneself" -Sergio Tiempo
To an undersea vagabond, napping while time hangs
Swaying in a three dimensional world at a shipwreck, a scene of the fathom deep
And filtered light, made gentile by the depths, form sunset colors down under
A scene where novelty never declines, where I am caught in a metamorphosis
Capturing the moment and burning the colors and shapes into my memory
A cuttlefish jets every which way, perplexingly enfolding space as it moves, lending a faithful portrait in the process
It is only now when I realize the extent of my will, to explore these mysterious, watery depths of the earth...
Enveloped in liquid darkness and icely temperatures, I fall through layers of water, focusing on stillness to counteract everything moving and shifting
What's interesting is not knowing where it's going to...
Ascending through a shimmering bait ball, glinting and teaming with life, a limitless pool of life
A crocodilefish, camouflaged against a backdrop of unpolished coral
Immersed in illuminated hidden depths, with a panting fish surround
Floating over a rock, untouched by human hand, full of unseen creatures
A gleaming fish with wary, curious eyes, among underwater shadows
Dissolving into itself, moving like waves in ever-changing shapes, melting in and out of its surroundings
Like I'm on a ride to the surface
