Guest Submission: Diving Deep and Surfacing

I have the honor of being the featured guest blogger on The Ink Owl today. A much shorter version of this piece was published on Brave and Reckless a few months ago. I really like this expanded version. Michael is a fabulous writer– check out more of his work

The Ink Owl


You are swift moving water

traveling through dense forest



through the midnight landscape

fireflies and Luna moths


your body

in a dazzling display

of bioluminescence

while wood nymphs

waltz on your mossy banks

to the chorus of crickets

and the hoots of snow white owls

I am the waxing moon

hanging in the indigo night

cool and remote

my silver light

glittering upon your surface

where I see myself reflected

I am almost beautiful

As you flow over rocks and logs

up hills and down vales

then rush over cliffs

where become a waterfall

you sing me a siren song

of longing

of heart’s desire

until recklessly into your depths

I plunge
