The only sound is the sound
Of my breath and strange echoes
That travel from the surface
Into my cool bluish world.
Weightless, I feel so at home
As though I were meant to swim.

Maybe in another life,
I was a mermaid under
The sea, hair flowing, long fins,
Living without gravity,
Flying through a liquid space
Where the stars are all alive.

Caren E. Salas

  1. Sounds wonderful - but I'm not a big fan of swimming so being a mermaid doesn't really appeal to me. I like the line about the stars being alive. Very clever.
