Relics

The deep sea mystery 

swathed in turquoise hues,

drowning in the relics

barnacles cling to stone.

.

The carved faces remain

statuesque and ancient.

In the watery depths

a monument plays host

.

to civilisations

lost. Aqueous eons

for discovery and to

fathom in their wonder

.

at the beauty of it

all and its creation.

In exploration and

waves history floats past.
