Sun shining warm and brightly,
people laying on various towels,
the smell of pizza in the air,
children screaming and laughing.
For me, I float in the cold water,
isolated from the others
kicking to keep my head
from going under.
With an intake, I dive.
Water surrounded me.
I curled up in a ball,
eyes closed the whole time.
listening to the singing of the water
that sounded like a female,
my mind seemed to slip away,
along with my soul.
I woke,
and I saw the great blue ocean.
In fear of drowning,
I tried to reach, but I couldn’t.
I gasped my last hold of breath
only result in my lungs breathing.
Wonder, I look one more time
the show begin.
Fish of various kind and color swim
making a rainbow around me.
Mammals of the sea swirled
and one dolphin, looking wise and young,
nudged me to the surface which then I breathed.
As I open my eyes once again,
everything was back to normal.
A ring came out and a man barking orders,
“It is time for a break!”
People started to come out and for me.
I was the last one to come out.
When I dream that night,
I will come back to the ocean
till the end of summer.
