Sunset low tide at Whitby, North Yorkshire, England

           Aquanaut

 

             Water prison.

 

             Inside the bubble still—

             environed, sunken, missed.

 

             Terra firma.

 

             Who says it's out of reach?

             The sky is gliding by.

 

             Chances surface.

 

             Whatever means will do—

             a raft, a wreck, a whale.
