"If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,"

Beyond a land with thick greenery lays a sandy field of white and blue,

With sparkling towers that lead up to the clouds.

The dolphins splash gleefully and cackle at the reflection of heaven in their eyes.

The waves twist and collapse on themselves like atoms in fusion and fission.

Silvery fins flicker through the dark

Tanticles grab and reach for their shine 

They speed past and the outreaching arm slithers back into a cravess that hides its unblinking eyes 

and its hooked beak.

A huge shadow lurks above the sea bed and snap its jaws to snag a feast

its teeth gleam and soak in red while bits stick in between its rows of pearly whites. 

The tiny creatures watch as the fiercesome foe lurks away and stares menacingly while opening its mighty jaws. 

The waves explode and droplets fly momentarily in the air before melting into its own massive being. 

A drifting vessel comes awaiting its northern guide to show behind a lingering cloud. 

Its creaking wood and drowsy crew sway about. 

A hump appears beside the bow, and shakes its vessel slightly. 

Awe-strucken and frightened they hold on and watch its body appear and disappear under a wave of solid turquoise. 

A breeze whips up the sail and draws them closer to a destination,

As a pair of eyes watches from below.

Pinching the swaying green on the sea floor. 

Crawling slowly with its arms reaching out. 

Others slither out of their homes and charge their tails. 

But most just wander about on their own lost in their ways of survival, 

and in the deepness of their reality.

The sea is an interesting place. It is almost like another world and I've always been fasinated.
