Octopus

Screen Shot 2016-07-30 at 9.38.53 AMTangled in inky shallows
a slave to mossy tides
pulling, stretching, sallow
The moon becomes a guide

snap!

a myriad of suckers break free
the blue crashes from below
To duck toward danger is key
legs pull up like a bow

release!

toward depth
toward beauty
toward the unknown

from stagnant
from stuck
from temporary home

radiating symmetry
in clouds of tiny lights
tentacles form a tree
feel, absorb, delight

In freedom
