Parallel Undersea Realms
by Moira Draconia

Under the sea
I’ve seen parallel realms
so many choices
so many paths a dream can take
they are waiting for you
behind a thin membrane
reaching through
another world
so soft, so warm after being so cold
and alone
stretching the boundary from
one world to the next

Under the sea
drifting aimless in this dark space
just a little, glowing soul
among others
I follow them quietly
through the membranes
and back again
scaling rocks with creatures watching me

Above the sea
stars hang on chains
boats lay like misplaced slippers
a tall tower rising into the purple twilight
greets my tired eyes
like an old dog wagging its tail
its flickering flame
guiding me

Above the sea
I see a cage
a cage I think I am inside
but really I am out
on the cliffs
I see so many lit candles
tucked in alcoves
so the flames won’t burn out
