Depths of the imagination

Let your imagination take a dive Dismiss those voices willing it to soar, Explore the secrets hidden to mankind And gaze at sights you've never seen before. Take a deep breath then silently descend; Leave restless shores and anxious thoughts behind. Deep in the fearless ocean's azure realm, Enchanted landscapes captivate your mind. A world of wonders passes slowly by As free from bonds of gravity you glide. Through living waters rich in vibrant life Kaleidoscopic colours coincide. Fine gossamer of fragile life cascades Down to the luring coral reef below, A ballet of exotic fish parade As bioluminescent starfish glow. When life's adventures dangle out of reach, Imagination holds the magic key Just close your eyes and dare to take the plunge To open seas of possibility. 23.08.19 'Wow me poetry contest' sponsored by Nina Parmenter

This poem certainly did wow me Wendy. I have a great application of the colorful scenes below the sea. There is such breathtaking beauty. My daughter got to swim with a huge turtle and captured it with my underwater camera. Your poem is indeed enchanting and I am putting it into my Faves! Congratulations on your deserving top win! xxoo
