I found myself, alone, floating across the sea

In a tiny boat, I wondered what happened to me

The water, crystal clear, sparkled, like sunlit glass

Fish swam below me, schools of them, en masse

I couldn’t see anything, no matter where I looked

Suddenly, the calm receded, then the water shook

Up, from out of the ocean, a distant island appeared

At least I think it was, my eyesight, not quite clear

Palm trees swayed, in the breeze, atop a sandy shore

I shaded sun from my eyes, why couldn’t I see more?

Alas, I realized, this place, was all that had remained

Of Earth, of me and my boat, the rest is unexplained
