Under the Sea

What lies beneath the water green
in the deepest depths of the sea?
How many things we've never seen
or ever dreamt there'd be?
Things to surprise you and me.

What lies beneath the ocean waves
farther down than anyone's ever been?
In coral or reefs or hidden caves,
are there creatures we've never seen
far below the waves of green?

The ocean fascinates me more
than tales of outer space.
So many things on our planet to explore
before we leave this place.
So many surprises here to face.

I'd love to be the explorer who
discovers the secrets of the deep.
Is the bottom of the ocean green or blue?
What other secrets does it keep?
What treasures are there to reap?

Atlantis or monsters of the deep,
I long to know what's there,
I'd be so joyful I would weep
if only I could share
the knowledge of the wonders there.

With you there Francine. Always have been. We hold a vast store of wealth in the oceans known and unknown and it is remarkable how little we venture to explore it compared to our outer space ventures. Enjoyed.

Francine, there truly are some wonders yet to be found beneath the sea. The discovery of "The Bimini Road" leads some to speculate it was a road in Atlantis. And the Marianna Trench is too deep for true exploration, but I fantasize about prehistoric creatures living there. So beautifully written in perfect form. They built an undersea replica of Atlantis off the S. Florida Coast. A "theme park" only scuba divers can see. Wow, this has to go to my faves. Love, Carolyn
