So falter wings in earthly graven state,
Tarred those feathers; glued by base endeavour.
Transcendence beckons still at heaven’s gate,
Lamentations lost beyond forever.
Deny the lie that floats on surface seen,
While sonar echoes muted far below.
Fowl of seas and all living in between
Cast off the nets, surfactant bubbles blow.
Puddled splashes, a permit to enjoy,
Though shallow’d pools hide relinquished ocean.
Submersion energising; to employ
Depth charge in propulsion, an explosion
To electrify Aurora’s ions.
Aerate atmosphere, egrets to lions.
