Beneath The Surface Poem by sherrie tappenden

Beneath The Surface

Rating: 3.5

I thought I saw a glimpse.
the tight knit chrysalis
in a diamond out of sight.

embryonic, still unformed.
changing ever moving,
evolving and invisible.

I slipped beneath the surface.
felt the world up in the sky.
and the pounding closed me in.

in real time.

Metamorphic, smooth and beautiful.
spiralling towards the centre
of the universe.

dormant, sleeping still
below mossy slabs
sweet and sad.

I brushed aside the cobweb.
felt the diamond in my hand
and the deep cut of reality.

In real time.

This is a superb write, and entraps much of the mystery surronding the so-called normal - - much food for thought and beautifully executed.... thank you Sherrie. 10 from Fay..
