2018 Kids Sea Camp Poem

Scuba Dive

We dive through our lives in the same routine
not adventuring or exploring anything
Then all at once, the wind unfurls
we dive into a separate world
A world of rhythm a home to fish
a place of peace for those who wish
and me a guest a mere spectator
who’ll just take pictures to look at later
I grab my reg, check my mask, it’s clean
And I cover my pasty white face with sunscreen
I dive into an ocean of coral and sea,
might see a nurse shark if I’m really lucky
But the dives weren’t the real thing that made this trip neat
It’s the divers, the staff, and the friends that I meet
Because I think that the dives would be a huge bore
Without friends to come with you to help you explore
