Monsters of the Deep

 Painting and Poem by Dr Abe V Rotor

Shh… sleep and dream
of a world beneath the waves.
of monsters of the deep you read,
in the legend of the Argonauts,
or Jules Verne’s novel of the sea;
before the lens begins to probe
beyond the skin of the sea,
to where the sea down there
is deeper than Everest is high.

Monsters these are under the bed
in the bathtub or rock pool,
monsters the imagination makes,
where the line is none or unclear
between imagination and truth,
for fantasy works best in the dark 
and the mind is young and free.
