Pellucid …

Pellucid rock pool

Pellucid rock pool

Ripples of shadow
make contours of water
caressing the sharp-edged rocks.
From the darkness of the cave
into the clarity
of a sunlit pool,
the pure well-spring of sweet water
seeps unsullied to the sea;
the intangible made tangible:
a pellucid paradox. …

    Always, always great to read your lines. Delighted to see that you are still publishing your thoughts. Hope all is well in your world.

    And, of course, I can’t go without mentioning the photograph. Did you know that the hovering Cylon Warship casts a giant shadow in the waters below. πŸ™‚

    All the best,

    Good morning, JW … How very nice to see you !

    Thank you very much for your kind words. I’m very pleased to know that you enjoyed a glimpse into the rock pool.

    Yes, thank you, all is well. I hope you and your family are flourishing.
    We’re enjoying some beautiful, sunny days after about eight months of rain … it seems like another world with all the plants and flowers burstiing with beauty and life.

    I didn’t know about the Warship .. that explains a lot !

    Have a happy, sunny day …. all good wishes to you all, Marya.
