Into the Deep Dark Sea

Into the Deep Dark Sea

by Elizabeth Challinor

She shook the colours off her shoulders

They slid in rainbow slices down her body

And settled on a heap in the sand

She lifted her head up high

And began to run

Towards the deep dark sea

No horizon

Pitch black sky

Nothing to see

She plunged into the waters

No need to open or close her eyes

In surrendered anticipation

Of the delicious unknown
