When the Waters Rise

“Perfect Balance” Surreal Art Photography by Luisa Azevedo

“Always be like a water. Float in the times of pain or dance like waves along the wind which touches its surface.” ― Santosh Kalwar

When the waters rise I’ll go sailing 
To the edge of this world 
Finding my own little island 
Somewhere beyond the horizon
I’ll swim in blue lagoon waters, 
And gaze up into a sparkling sky
I’ll sleep in the arms of cool stars 
Shimmering in an ebony night
And there I will live my life
Safely ensconced within
The fantasies of my mind
Where all is divine and kind

  1. Sometimes fantasies can sustain us until real life settles down and nourishes us again.

  3. Oy. If only the waters didn’t rise; but I suppose they will. And we’ll all be sailors then & hopeful of finding those same soothing shores. Well wrought, Sister.
