Water Sign

By Josie Bacon

Inside me is an oceanCerulean and flickeringNever ending and nonexistentThe tide swells with my prideAnd silver fish twirl beneath the surface with my joyMy laughter is a pod of dolphins leapingAnd the sky turns a rosy sunset hue when I’m in loveThe weather changes along with my moodIt can happen suddenly, in an instantWhirlpools form with my anxietySwirling downward into deep darknessRain pours in with my sadnessWaves crash with my rageBut in time my serenity always returnsAnd with it, the frothy water stillsAnd the champagne fish resume their glittering pirouettes
