Ocean home

Living on the ocean as I do, I hunt fish and mollusks

my kin are otters and whales, wide eyed we dive

the night waves, soft in lullabies

in a sea dream, starlit and moon cradled

my lips are sparkling and salt flecked

my eyes wide awake from sleep

in a myriad of visions these sea colors

all my days, swum in a variance of blues

oceans deep and streaked in silver shoals

the day skies fade and die, into nights

plush and indigo blue.
