Deep Blue

I was born to meet the sky

to dive upwards into clouds

to shout out my name from above

and howl mercy into the winds.

I befriended thunderstorms

and lent my voice to gekkos.

I stood still for a moment

and became the world’s oldest tree.

I dove in with the earthworms

and sated my appetite on dirt.

The Earth gave me all of this back

and more.

I only have one more thing to do

and that’s

to sink back into the ocean.
