underwater

she and i
tended a garden
that grew deep
beneath the waves
a hidden sanctuary
where the sun
is only a dream

we made love
on the currents
lit by the
bioluminescence
carefully
cultivated
along rows of kelp

i didn’t question
our submerged life
well aware
wherever
her smile leads
is the only home
necessary for me
