I swam next to my youngest daughter.
Face mask pressed tightly to my face,
Snorkel positioned, providing air.
A large silver-fish followed us
Circling in a mutual curiosity
Slicing slowly through the salty water
I snapped pictures capturing each moment.
Blue, yellow, black, green, and silver sea creatures
Decorated the clear cobalt liquid,
Until an eye-catching fish swaddled in a rainbow
Lured us in another direction.
Our flippers propelled us through the dull gray coral.
Unexpectedly, the reef burst into pink and purple.
Here the tiny yellow fish with black spots were on diverse display.
A school of thin blue-fish glided at the top of the water
While I floated above this underwater magic…
Trying to record these memories.
Suddenly, to my left, something large caught my eye.
In-between my daughter and I was a substantial sea turtle– a honu.
I met the honu’s gaze and wisdom was reflected back
We swam for eternity, just the three of us
Our souls recognized the significance of this occasion.
Then the honu glanced at me one more time
And with a slight nod from her, that I returned
She sped away into the riptide.
Gone from our sight, but not our hearts
I’m gifted with a saturating-perception of potential
From the blissful time, we swam with a honu.
