Aqua Magic

Deep ocean plankton
drift like snowflakes
fecal pellets, blood red

jelly fish illuminating
the depths, brushing
shoulders with sea sapphires.

Glass squid & transparent
octopi propel themselves
through inky saltwater.

Exotic bacteria peek up
translucent flashing skirts
of mushroom shaped cephalopods.

Lantern fish float on currents
through worm riddled Spanish
galleons & sunken treasure

bioluminescent sea stars, algae
& organisms like aquatic gypsies
endlessly wander, chill & flicker.
