Octopus
 
O, gentle octopus,
How I wish I could
Join you in your
Watery ballet;
Floating in the
Blackness of the sea;
The ocean’s
Deep,
Dark
Keep.
 
img_1195_400As I sink
Down through
The swells,
Caressed by
Dark green
Seaweed;
Like the fingers
Of a siren, or a
Goddess.
 
Down, down
I float into the
Blackness of
Watery space;
The liquid denizens
Fluidly parading past,
Like some dream-like
Figures in a Dali or
Miro painting.
 
Surrealistic,
Ethereal Figures;
Wreathed In their
Trailing glass-like
Bubbles like laurels.
 
The blackness
Of the deep
Punctuated
By splashes of
Occasional
Colour;
Blue, yellow,
White and
Red.
 
O, gentle octopus,
How I wish I could
Join you in your
Watery ballet;
To float like
A dream in
Poseidon’s
Deep,
Dark
Keep.
