Breathtaking


Beneath a veneer of  sapphire waves,
Rays of sunshine make fingers of light,
Ethereal, over crusty,  pink coral forms.
Atolls that rise from stark white sand, create
Tunnels for twining eels and twinkling starfish
Hues of rainbow anemones  mingle with
Tangerine flowers, resplendent along
Avenues of pelagic growth, draping over
Knolls of time worn stones, mirrored 
In sunken remnants of marble ruins.
Now, at day's end an orange sunset 
Glows with long beams to reveal a lost Atlantis.

You had me at "veneer of sapphire waves". Atlantis has inspired much romanticism over the years ... and it seems to have made a willing victim over your muse, too. Beautiful images and lively activity ... ancient mystery beneath the deep. Well done!
