unfathomable

entry picture

 

take me down into the well of passion

let me lose myself in the seaweedy ocean

rushed back and forth by unknown currents

to give myself up to the tide.

 

dive dark and deep, dark and deep

on the seas rough bed,

with tangles of  black kelp 

and brandy snaps of coral,

serenaded by the whales song,

to feel a salty freeflowing pleasure

at your sailors hands.

 

just as altitude kills passion

where all is made from light,

and ethereal purity

fades into whiteness

where love cannot breathe,

so, I need depth.

I need a thousand fathoms of your loving.

 

so dive and dive and dive again with me

down to the bottom

of this dark deep sea

where anemones

are cabochon of ruby and of emerald

and electric eels shine brighter

than any candleglow.

where shoals of spangled fishes

dart and gleam like kisses

and love’s a drowning man and woman

in the oceans swirling bosom

deep deep deep below.

I really like this one Anne. I love the references to the sea, cos being a diver myself I have seen these wonderful sights first hand. You have a beautiful reading voice too.

I love this, Ann. It is excellent, and I think the audio works very well, actually.

It was a bit of a rush between me and my soundeffects here! So audio is a bit not very good! Sounds like I'm drowning in the bath! But it was fun anyway!!
