In the deepest of the bluest ocean,
delightful secrets lurk beneath,
evoking amazed emotions,
at the wonders that are suddenly unleashed.
You see clouds of colourful fish fly by,
scales shimmering beautifully in the light.
You hear their soft, happy cries,
as they play together in delight.
As you slowly swim past,
you feel something stroke your skin.
Bright thriving aquatic plants,
still astonished by the beauty within.
Now completely out of breath,
you rise to the surface.
There are wonders in the ocean,
of that you are certain.
