Poem Commentary

This is my submission to the daily challenge good luck to all

The Ocean

The Ocean

Churning, pushing, flowing in and out
Waves crash leaving me upside down
Moving swiftly through the ebb and flow
I find myself turned all around

In the depths of the ocean's floor
I am but a stranger to the sea
Schools of angelfish kiss my face
How long under the water can I be

Drifting, swimming, floating by
Colors dance in the rays of light
Gliding, dancing, floating surrounds
For me it's such a short flight

Bubbles rise, my time is up
Depart from angel's kiss
Yearning, longing for more time
In the ocean is what I will miss

It is amazing that even submerged at the bottom of the ocean you are able to set these verses on their way to tell your tale. I sure enjoyed the read and wish you luck in the daily competition. mamasan
