Start with your face mask down in the Thames-
see eels,crayfish,weeds,fast fish flash past
Join a diving group-seek wrecks to peek at
dive deep in clear water among Liberty ships
sailing ships from another century,hulks
with unexploded ammunition and craters surrounding
World Wars make more skeletons to explore
You can float gently down in to another world
within the shell of a past that was once beloved
Know that what remains is only artifacts post plunder
and most have been long ago stripped of significance
Maybe you will find a Uboat wrecked off Cornwall
plates and heels of boots once worn/little cannonballs
you carry home to remind you =you dive in to the past
once you commit to the deep/these dreams return
every time you sleep...
