Deep space

She sinks into the blue                                                                                                                     and inverts her mind                                                                                                                         which is floating into blue                                                                                                                   of a different kind

A fish darts by
“Like a bird!” she thinks                                                                                                                        And the current it makes                                                                                                                    is like wind on her face

Darkness envelops
excitement mounts
life bioluminesces
like stars; she gazes into infinity

Enraptured by its beauty
like velvet sequined with burning diamonds                                                                                     she can feel it slide across her skin
so smooth it almost feels like liquid

The lights fade and disappear
nothing lives here
in the depths of space
where the emptiness is devoid even of air

Her eyelids drift shut
a smile dances on her mouth
she surrenders to the dark
and begins her journey to that otherworldy place
