    On learning earlier this week of the death of a long time scuba diver, I recalled this piece, somber but comforting, by yours truly.
    -------
    Mesmerizing, intoxicating liquid lapus lazuli
    water stretching to eternity
    in all directions
    in all dimensions,
    Singing come with me...stay with me...
    From the sea you came
    and to the sea you must return,
    again and again
    until you return at last, to leave no more.
    -------
