Michelle fascinates me with her ability to mix paint and verse. They are intimate and evocative. She has put together a few pieces for us to enjoy today, and when you are done with them I am sure you will want to head over to her place for another helping.
The Ocean is Salty Enough
The water, cold…
Leaving me reeling and exposed.
And no matter how firmly I cling to crevices
Rock climb and sand sink
Wish upon a far off star…
I understand that some things are simply stronger than me.
Besides, I always hated tug of war.
So, I surrender.
Sweet suction release…
Tumble me gently out to sea.
Glide me under moon glow
Closed eyes trap tears…
The ocean is salty enough.
A cautious comfort with the beautiful chaos that surrounds me….not so scary really,
when you look it in the eye.
Reaching up, breaking through...I’m…here… and I’m barely breathing, again.
Kiss my fingertips?
