Seed (day 1862)

Could you hide away with turtles
And spend the day afloat
Sinking with the rising tide
Surfing with the wave.
Could you keep a lonely life
Deep amidst the sea
With octopi and jellyfish
Always there harassing thee.
And if the sailor dragging lines
Came along your closed up shell
Could you navigate away
From their expanding net?
And surely swimming free
You’d represent jubilee,
Swimming amidst the sea
Navigating by your seed.
