Favorite Quote:
"Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known."
— A.A. Milne

Through a tunnel of light
piercing down through the waves
what can I see what can I
share about the ocean
the unforgiving darkness
deep deep
oh the cavernous abyss stretches
what can be shared about its depth
how can we
know when no light can
possibly reach down to
grasp at its deep deep rolling
sound when no ray of light can brush
its rough foundation with
the same light fingers which
define our world
And how
can time respond to its needs
when no sun sets on its salty shores
deep deep deep
the waters rolling call
sounds through the darks
sounds out the stories fought
in the dark
I could tell the story of a deep sea
hero fighting against his hunter
forever chased through the
flying through the blue depth on
silver wings
and struggling to live to
carry on with its race
just to keep itself going
oh but that dark
it is carnivorous
it knows no mercy to the innocent
and with what would be such a tragedy
up in the brilliance of the sun
with what would be unthinkable
in our fragile world
but where there is no love
no love at all
there can be no tragedy
and when that delicate
hero is extinguished
it is purely life
and life goes on
