Waves goodbye

At the bottom of page B7
of the newspaper that day
were three short sentences
that detailed the death
of an underwater diver
whose body floated to 
the surface during a 
subsurface photograph
session in the caves 
below the waves of
South Florida. 

She clipped them carefully
and pasted them into 
the family Bible, so his
children might know that
he died doing something 
he loved and that somebody
had actually taken notice.
