the sky is a tide pool;
the stars photo-luminescent algae and fish scales- the sort of thing on children would wonder at,
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.
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.
I stargaze and see only the ocean.
