is where I am free.
Free from the restraints and chaos
of the world.

I gaze up at where the air meets the water.
The gentle breeze caresses the water,
the Sun warms my cold face
and the icy, clear waters.
The currents play a game
of Tug-of-War and I sway
back and forth
and back and forth.

Oh, how I envy the fish
of their lives in the water.
For they would have no knowledge of the
hustle and bustle of our lives.
I envy the sea turtle
for I wish I could be as unhurried and
Graceful as he.
I envy the sting-ray
for he is the bird of the ocean,
the sea; his sky.

The author's comments:
I am a swimmer and spent most of my life in water. I was in California for a swim meet and was having a bad day. My coach told me to get into the pool before my event and I looked at the designs on the surface of the water underwater and it reminded me of my love for the ocean which instilled a calm peace upon me.
