This one kind of jellyfish doesn’t die by Lisa Byus (Lucent Dreaming Issue 8)

A polyp pulses in the primordial deep
Undulating into an ephyra in another epoch
Luminous beneath fathoms and fathoms and fathoms and more
Suspended in centuries of silent depths, then stirring
An eternal Cambrian climbing to the rippling sunlight
And the break of age.

Lisa enjoys writing poems, ancient history, and one Irishman. Also brownies.
