"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.” – Jacques Cousteau
Capturing the moment and burning the colors and shapes into my memory
Coasting deeper into the shifting play of light, thoughts fade away, fears are left behind
A cuttlefish jets every which way, perplexingly enfolding space as it moves, lending a faithful portrait in the process
A rush of sinuous fish stream by, moving united in thought
Chromis viridis glitter like stars in the sky, focused yet indifferent...
Swaying in a three dimensional world at a shipwreck, a scene of the fathom deep
To an undersea vagabond, napping while time hangs
And filtered light, made gentile by the depths, form sunset colors down under
A scene where novelty never declines, where I am caught in a metamorphosis
"It's really when one stops thinking about oneself and become oneself" -Sergio Tiempo
It is only now when I realize the extent of my will, to explore these mysterious, watery depths of the earth...
Enveloped in liquid darkness and icely temperatures, I fall through layers of water, focusing on stillness to counteract everything moving and shifting
What's interesting is not knowing where it's going to...
Ascending through a shimmering bait ball, glinting and teaming with life, a limitless pool of life
A crocodilefish, camouflaged against a backdrop of unpolished coral
Immersed in illuminated hidden depths, with a panting fish surround
Floating over a rock, untouched by human hand, full of unseen creatures
A gleaming fish with wary, curious eyes, among underwater shadows
Dissolving into itself, moving like waves in ever-changing shapes, melting in and out of its surroundings
Like I'm on a ride to the surface
