Imagine you have the ability to breathe underwater
A fish swam by
Purple with orange dots
I waved hello
He flapped his fins and sped on

Rays of sun through the water
Lead me down, down, down
To watch a starfish attach itself to a rock
Resting from the hard work of sand walking

I, too, rest nearby
Shimmering tail curled neatly
A breath
Then another

Until the next fish swims by
Yellow this time, with curious black rimmed eyes
I follow up, through the next ray of sunshine
Breaking the surface on another day of freedom
