Stay in the deep

‘Whirlwind’ by Philip Dodson

The outer world is stormy
The sky darkens
The clouds are angry
A gale rises
The waves grow bigger
The sea is full of might
The thunder rumbles
The lightning charges the night
The fear comes
Deep fear of what might be
The mind is full of dread
The ship is rolling and crashing
I think maybe I’ll perish
Deep below in the deep sea
There is calm
In depths there is no storm
It’s always peaceful
Always calm no matter
Just the tiny surface that can be disturbed
Energy rises from the deep
Stay in the deep and not the shallow
And the fear subsidies
