In the sea, bubbles swim towards the sunny surface
Jellyfish float down to the dark depths of the water.
Starfish wait among the underwater gardens
While colorful little fish greet each other.
On the rocks there is the steady beat of waves
Crashing over all
Little crabs scramble over mounds of seaweed
As gulls and cormorants call for their food.
Clouds in wisps overhead drift on and on
As the wind whispers to the sun
"Time to sleep."
A silent lull comes to earth
As the moon rises over the dark trees,
Birds go off with their catch
Under the water
It's just another time for creatures
To become active
And enjoy another life!
