Beneath the Aegean

When all Earth’s seas shall Levitate,
Dark shawled above the skies,
For our new eyes will Starfish dance
Their waltz of Blind surprise.

The sun will Rise within Wine Dark
As Argonauts imbibed,
Whose drunken arms embraced that sleep
Where Phaeton’s horses Stride.

Upon all  Earth’s wind-sanded shores,
As dolphins Learn to soar,
All we were upon the land
Shall be sealed behind the Door

Of Ivory and Chastened Gold,
That the Mystery solved complete
Shall never till the seas’ Long fall
Wake mariners from their Sleep.

    A Beginning Without an Ending
    When from the waters’ depths we at last emerged
    With makeshift legs and hands, fins now purged,
    We strode the land, heard some Unknown urging,
    “Find When, What, Why — keep the seeking surging.”

    We agree and we obey, so it’s now in our DNA,
