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.
