The Feeling of the Sea

Archana talks about the calm, beautiful feeling of her being underwater.


I feel the dry sand under my bare feet The ocean waves come crashing onto the beige sand Then, I hold my breath and close my eyes and dive into the crystal clear, turquoise sea When I dive, I feel the water take me into their underwater kingdom Life pauses above me and resumes underwater Fish swim around me, bubbles float near the surface of the water, colorful coral catches my eyes, and the sea bursts with liveliness I feel this is my nirvana, but I must go back up to inhale and exhale I push the water underneath me, exerting myself upwards Life resumes on land but pauses underwater That underwater feeling of the sea
