Scuba diving in a cenote is one of my lifetime top-ten experiences, one I’ve long wanted to describe. I’ve attempted lyrics before but somehow a normal song doesn’t capture the meditativeness of it. So here it is as a spoken-word ambient type of track. Which is probably cheating, but hey, one more down 😛 This was based on a skirmish prompt, “swim”, and was a rare quick one for me, less than an hour. You can see why: just random layering of synthy effects and blessedly unrhymed “lyrics”. I could get used to this.
CenoteDrive in rough countryTo a mouth in the groundCave-world open to the skyPlunge into clear, still blueBubbles connect you to the sunUnderwater cathedralA world of water aboveA world of silence belowNo sound but breathNo sight but lightBreathe in, breathe outSwim, be stillBreathe in, breathe out
