Earth's Breathe



Out across the sea
Eels twisting through turning tides
Jellyfish decorating empty seas
Sea slugs slithering up reefs of the olden
Orcas singing in the dead of night
 
Down
Deep within this world, we know
On the crest of the wave
In turning tides
Drifting through vast seas
Twirling and dancing
Gifting corals festive hues
Giving breathe to the wind
The stardust that litters midnight oceans
Creating a super-sized cosmic ray
