Free Diving

In superhuman ability or the golden ring sought filling the lungs to capacity into the waves besot Faster and deeper into the depths sleek as if born to this world Seeing what few will ever as around its denizens swirled Diving off an undersea high rise of stones not trodded by men my own breath becoming troubled she dives deeper and deeper again Sprinting alleyways on the seas floor between walls cut precisely by time Or chiseled by The will of God a workmanship sublime The danger of becoming so fully entranced must remain uppermost in mind As to aid in the returning to the world of the land breathing kind Unencumbered free flowing soaring leaping in a single bound how does she talk herself into returning to this now unhallowed ground Awash in this world without chaos quieted by purpose of thought Off the wheel off the chain this my friend can't be bought Watch it yourself see what I mean live it through the fearless eyes Of a free diver plunging into the surf to traverse it's watery skies
