Discovery

At midnight,

the sky is a tide pool;

the stars photo-luminescent algae and fish scales- the sort of thing on children would wonder at,

discarded

distant

and beautiful.

At midnight;

the milky way is a coral reef;

we are finding safety in her delicate bones,

building life in the spaces where she breathes

our bodies carried by celestial eddies.

I swear,

at midnight,

the sky looks like a tide pool

and my feet wish they could forsake gravity to swim in her.

The clouds roll by like sea foam,

if i squint my eyes and laugh, the horizon breaks like waves and the constellations ripple.

At midnight,

I stargaze and see only the ocean.
