Take my breath away

The complexity of the ocean
has nothing on us:
what swims within
seems often vague and mysterious,
even threatening at times,
but when we stop swimming away,
relax and let the mud settle,
the wonder of it --
the delicacy, the color,
the myriad shapes,
the infinite variety
of coping mechanisms --
can take your breath away.
