It was so still and grey on this October day.
The waves were gone, playing in other seas,
And pelicans flew by quietly.
The ocean had no texture to knock me off my feet.
The water was so clear I could see detail in the reef.
The cloud cover made me feel like I was in a cozy room.
I felt warm and content despite the gloom.
The breath of the dolphin was louder than the sea.
I felt, as I paddled, that the animals were spying on me.
