L’ETOILE(The Star)

L’ETOILE(The Star)

Unable to swim
but willing to dive

I plunge
from the honeymoon

boat left bobbing
on a blue

created with
sunlight & water

I dive
to the bottom of the sea

become a fish
flippered & snorkled

hold now
a starfish

clutched in my hand

fascinated until
gazing up

I see above me
the dreaming boat

asleep on
a thin blue line

of sunlight & water

& I
70ft below
it

I suddenly realising
I can’t swim

somehow make it
back to the surface

holding the starfish

that you sleeping now

clutch
in your dreaming

hand.
