elemental pulsations


pulsations of the elements
grip the spasm
the boat is an enigma
I feel weightless in sand
tumbling in a rare medium
the spacious vastness 
pulls me in rapid succession
I am released into a misty glass
shedding my clothes, I bared my soul too
I watch the boat take away my hubris

"wipe the mist and look at the sky,
light is never far away"

This is really trippy! The words fit the picture perfectly. I kept going back and forth. One minute I'd stare at the photo, the next I'd read your words again. Cool!

Wow! Watching the boat (symbol of wealth and status in larger vessels) taking away his greed and sin. I simply loved this, Gautami. Thank you for including the link on my blog! Peace, Amy
