Favorite Quote:
And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.
-Sylvia Plath

I remain suspended somewhere deep, between the sea and the sky

Where your lovely smile holds me afloat as my mind sinks deeper into the silt

Your eyes peer at me through the leaves of the greening trees

You mouth giggles at the wonder from the petals of the flowers you’ll never see

I hear your whisper as I paint and your tears fall with my leaking sink

Every so often the chemicals in my brain feel your pain and I wonder if you’re happy

I can see the dull pain behind your eyes that was never seen before

Looking back it is the ancient fossil gone unnoticed

I hoped I could hold your breath long enough to wake in peace

The heavy, salted air settles when you realize you’re alone

The view from here is gorgeous as you

That tightly woven hammock suspended between the sea and the sky

Are you there? (z”l)
