The enveloping sea swallowed me
in a swirl of turquoise-
weightless, unresisting, without noise
I swallowed the sea:
smoothly sliding, headlong gliding
into deepening blue.
In time suspended until-
no breathing, no memory of slow and silent motion ..
yet the songs the siren sings still lure me
as if on destiny and seagulls’ wings
to the embracing ocean … .
