Ribbons of the purest azure

vein me and slide

wraith like

through the very

recesses of my soul…

Unspoiling the darkness,

and adding layer upon layer

of indigo kindness

to the befouled portion

of what used to be my

finely beating heart…

Though the waters

have no real power here…

Their spiritual presence

is anathema to these wormholed

fleshy things…

Each of them now

sealed up tight

within the chambers

of my still

living body…..

  1. Powerful…your word imagery is so striking…every bit of it. Pardon me for saying…it is an erotic feeling write…nature at its finest:)

  2. So much feeling here… and the power, the fluidity of water… Yes – much contrast to our fleshy state, with weight and structure. A deep look into the water has almost a supernatural quality indeed. Enjoyed this immensely David – really great photo too… I’m inspired and going to have a meeting with the water in my backyard right now :)) ~RL
