I dance in the water’s ebb and flow while whales wander by and give me winks. Fish dart left and right laughing hysterically as they escape from frustrated sharks. The sea floor glows neon through an infinite black. I am curious as to what these new depths hold so I swim forward and venture out to fathoms untold.
