Brightly burning star fish...


Brightly burning star fish...


Do you wonder where you swim?


Wandering sky and ocean flying

floating now near shore line.


Many arms extended tugging

celestial weeds Irish moss.


Grasping glowing orange disc

climbing beds of coral coral.


Do you wonder where you swim

brightly burning star fish?
