Bard Underwater

In the water, she creates a new symphony -
Distorted ripples punctuated by strings;
Her silver dress a beacon in deep oceans.

She finds a new muscle memory
In the sway of her harp
Glissandos crashing against the rapids,
Adjusting to the undulating speed limits;
The impetuous energy of the water.

She plays counter melodies with the
New tempo in her skull,
The rattling applause of bones;
Soothing the fears of the now underwater world
With songs of hope.
