Fish Out Of Water

On this troubled, moonless night, I stand awestruck before her
For somewhere beneath the foam and froth of nature's mighty daughter;
Somewhere in brooding, forbidden waters lies my destiny...

    Thanks for the great compliment re:Su's contest, I wanted a sonnet so I just babbled out a 14 word love message and used each word as the beginning of the try! Light & Love Cher!
