Under the Brim (Tanka)

Bright dappled sunlight
A flash of silver streaks by
My eyes dart around
Snorkeling under the brim
A moment of Sheer Wonder


For mindlovesmisery prompt: Sheer Wonder

I love snorkeling. It is one of the few activities where I lose all sense of time and place. I forget even who I am, mindlessly following the fish and watching the sun dance under the surface.  I wish I could participate more than once or twice a year.  Perhaps that is what makes the experience such a constant source of wonder for me.
