Underwater photography



Falling away from the light,

Like the dream of a painter

In brushstrokes

Tormented with harrowing night.  

Waters close over lingering doubts –

An echo of silent goodbyes –


With the last breath of life

Out of sight.


Daily Prompt: Twilight Zone

  2. I don’t know what to say, bud! The artwork is evocative enough, but your word choice is…well, fantastic. Rock on, my brother, rock on!

    • While usually I will write a poem and then search for an image to complement the verse, in this case it was the image that inspired the poem. Of course my interpretation may differ from the photographer’s intent, but I suppose there will always be as many interpretations as there are viewers. Thank you.
