Secrets Submerged

Galene Illustration by Poet Rummager


In the deepest part of the ocean,

are secrets left unseen –

surrounded by waters

no human will ever swim.


Galene, do you hear me

as I walk the gritty shores?

My thoughts drifting in the breeze –

forging ripples in the sea.


Keep my secrets submerged

in your cimmerian world.


*Galene is the Greek goddess of calm seas.

**Cimmerian: 1. Mythical nomadic Greeks or ancient people who lived in perpetual mist and darkness near the land of the dead. 2. can also mean very dark and gloomy: deep.

  1. Great poem as ever, Rose. I’ve got to wonder what secrets are lurking down there deep at the bottom of the ocean. My first thought is that we need Wikileaks to release all the juicy details, but then I realized that if we’re talking about an entire ocean, that’s a lot of leaking.
