Paradise in Mayo
Pelted by salty water as the boat speeds out to sea; ascending gentle waves,
Dropping with a bounce. Roaring engine slows as the Island approaches.
Away from the world; emerald fields and bog land.
Diving gear waits in the small wooden huts.
In thick dunes of sand preparations are made.
Sea seduces the swimmers, drawing them to the deep.
Enticed away from the rough sands, another world, illuminated;
Sweltering sun rays, sparkling, submerged below.
Colourful creatures swarm by, life teeming, bustling, blobbing, but serene.
Aquatic paradise shaded with hues of coral and weed.
Nestling beasts cuddle on the soft, sandy seabed,
Dropping over an underwater ravine, plunging into deeper Nirvana.
