Sliding into the water like a
shadow slipping round a corner.
Sinking below the surface like a
coin rolling through a slit in the wall.
It’s quiet down here.
But colours are loud.
Bright yellow, electric blue fish,
inky black urchins,
orange sea flora, waving.
Gliding through a deep water showcase,
floating alongside forms from another world.
Who hears the pink coral
breathing its last breath?
