Deep Water

Poem a Day, Day 8 (catching up)… Write a “submersion” poem.


Deep water


With her eyes closed

It was easier to hear

The seashell sounds

Of eons

Siren songs

Reminding her

Of coming home

To the beginning of it all

Until breathlessly

Surging up for air

She recoiled

From the assault

Of turbulence and unfiltered light

Accusing her


Of wanting too much

Or needing too little

So she closed her eyes

Readied for the deepest dive

And prepared to sing along
