Thanks so much, Liz! My other one was outer space, so I made this one the ocean. 😊

Thank you very much! 🌸
Wonderful how you’ve given us such a lovely image in so few words!
That’s so kind, Dale. Thank you!
My pleasure 🙂
I so love this poem! You have crafted such a vision with only three lines!!! 🙂 This is a wonderful little poem to read again and again. It made me think how this vision would look in a children’s book with sea creatures darting about in the depths of the ocean deep. It made me think of fathoms deep and all that is still unexplored in the ocean. All that glowing and dancing…a lesson for us all. 🙂 Thank you for this poem…it is a treasure!
Thank you so much, Linda. I’m so pleased by your enthusiasm! 💙
