Just a short poem I wrote last year in English Writing. A somewhat visual, almost whimsical piece, inspired by growing up at the beach and snorkeling on the Barrier.

Under the new wharf, over the old reef -
the sea of azure slaps and licks,
sliced through the belly by the pale, summer sky.

Helios wheels overhead, arcing eternally.
Thin wheezy clouds blare and fizz in his wake,
shining on the water, glistening like mercury.

The lorikeets are silent now, sleeping in the shady trees,
wings stretched, beaks parted, eyes slowly shutting,
biding time until the sun deserts his throne atop the world.

But just beneath the ocean's fiery crust,
whale songs pierce the cool, blue deep.
And across the white sand, turtles fly.
