Submerged landscapes

Imagine that you are an air bubble, formed at the bottom of the sea, launched towards the surface by your own weightlessness, yearning to join other particles of H2O.

You rise solemnly and at a constant pace, and you have the good sense to gaze around you, because the underground landscapes that are present around you are impossible to admire in the daily grind of human life.
It is the magnificence and colorfulness of life and it is variable. Unfortunately, this rich treasure of biological life, this beautiful landscape, is fragile and dissolvable, just like human life. For this reason, observe this area well while you are a floating bubble, lost in the middle of this sea of blue.
Climb on to the sand and graze the soft leaves of the sea grass, tumble along the green filament, which is able, through its existence, to care for itself and preserve its beauty.
A tumble frees you from a cloud of Castagnole, small streaked fish, and you see a mass of red and yellow paramecia, and sea fans, and the rest of the chronically vertical forest. Climbing along a rocky wall there is a slash, a crevice, a cranny – inside there is an eel with cruel teeth and a feline gaze. Oh, look, what majestic gifts, a great grouper fish, pointed, covered with a myriad of shapeless spots: the small, curious bubble is safe from his heavy gaze.
Pass beyond, two red snappers wait for you, elegantly dressed and out for the hunt, but not for air – don’t worry! Higher up, the air becomes clearer; the burning rays from the sun enter the water as arrows of light. We are halfway up, watch out for the barracudas, a herd of graceful grazing fish. The light is uniform; just below the water’s surface there is already an intense spot of light. The little air bubble transforms itself into impalpable light. A raft drifts, floating on the water, lazy and indolent. Pointed towards the sea, a sub prepares to dive. The sub will follow our same path in the opposite direction and the underwater landscape will be the same.
