I live next to a Universe

Walking to the water's edge I spy the kelp and barnacles.  The water ripples gently.  Cormorants sit on pilings.

Just like where I stand, there is a whole world under that rippled surface,  a universe.  In the ocean world there are areas that have never been seen and species yet to discover..
Here on the Salish everything has pretty much been discovered, scientifically, at least that's the thought.  

Here on the Salish I discover something new everyday and, as I look out over the water, I think about that universe below and that I've never been there.
