Effervescent and plaintive -
a contradiction or so it seems,
my song, undeciphered
left behind as I rise,
sail into clouds upon ocean's spray
a spirit suspended -
almost an Assumption...
but with one last breath
I mercifully plunge, a gentle behemoth,
back into deep blue's silence
of bubbles, sunbeams, and vibrations -
an underwater sanctuary.
Can you hear my plea?

My dear friend, Toril, is an artist living in the driftless region of Wisconsin. She can be found on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/torilfineart/ and these fine fellows are for sale (there are actually three of them!) and many other new paintings she will be selling this spring & summer.
With such beauty, it is daunting putting words to the feelings these images evoke... I am my own worst critic, I'm afraid...
