I Love the 3 Dimensional Effect

"I've always been passionate about geometry and the study of three-dimensional forms."
Erno Rubik

Pink Shadow

“When we are unhurried and wise, we perceive that only great and worthy things have any permanent and absolute existence, that petty fears and petty pleasures are but the shadow of the reality.”
Henry David Thoreau

“Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance.”
Carl Sandburg

Memorial to Hawaii's WWI Dead:

The "Natatorium."

“Everything that we see is a shadow cast by that which we do not see.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Men are the dreams of a shadow.”


I used to tread water

in the North Atlantic.

Tough wavelets slapped me

upside the face.

Briny fingers

cork screwing my sinuses

with sting;

And I gagged

vainly trying to keep my nose above water

olive green,

concealing monsters,

and cold.


Today I float on my back

'neath a softly scented

azure Summer sky,

lazily alert to delight and

resting a cold libation

on the breast bone beneath

my swells;

I float in joy,

and gratitude.

Same ocean - different me

more like most myself,

it seems,

I have abandoned struggle

for abandon.

Place Your Last Line Here.
