    Gestation


    On a bounded shore

    where no wave breaks

    and salt bespeaks

    more ancient seas

    that rose and fell

    on stronger tides,

    a tup, a quickened seed

    adheres to root and grow

    unknowing in closet secrecy,

    flourishing tethered, navigating,

    an aquanaut of inner space,

    turning and tumbling

    in gill-less grace

    weightless

    waxing in unity

    life tugs out dependency

    under the press of gravity

    breaching this inner sea,

    in terminal diversity.

    The title was what I could think of at the time
    of first posting and so becomes unalterable.
    Subsequently the word "Gestation,"
    which is in every way preferable,
    came to mind as did gravity
    weightlessness
