Riptide wilderness

Lunar swimming in angry cerulean torrents swiftly as primeval passing of blue equinox sea-born of indomitable nautical command to envelop cloaked within mother the ocean Remembering in-utero wild amniotic hunger I dive deep submerged inside Poseidon's lair Senses burning alive tribal inebriated oxygen embryonic aquatic kingdom, vibrancy revealed Strong, steady, maritime language fathered techniques of stout heartedness hold strong & fast as I scan deep the watery sapphire horizon multitudes of planktonic organisms weave dancing The harrowing, drowning sailors sinking titanic ship's watery struggles plunging to Davey Jones locker obeisance to the kingdom the fisherman warned no safety or surprise for the iconoclastic swimmer Submarine amygdala hijack tsunami unfolding losing myself to wave patterns monstrous in my brain luminescent molecules reverberate to my touch Gliding through hidden cephalopod realms Spiralling up microscopic kelp-laden kingdoms I rise to kiss the air with salt-water gasping This holiest oceanic communion does heal all my riptide scars, delivered within lands prison
