Candyss is currently writing a children’s book. The very first night dive was many years ago and NIGHT DIVE is painted from memory of this first dive. The poem below is taken from a journal with fun sketches.
“The black surrounds you except for your light
The movement of creatures all give you a fright
curiously you ponder why am I here?
signal to buddy like a puppeteer
The lion fish gather to eat their prey whole
predators of the sea on night patrol
There’s magic there’s mystery on a night dive
you love and you hate it – will you make it alive?!
as you see a shark, an eel, a ray
it’s the end of dive Hip Hip Hooray!
you board the boat quickly sharks swim below
You’re safe you’re warm & glad you went though!
Imagining monsters in deep deep sleep
while under the boat the ocean life creeps”
