Bath Time

entry picture

Candle light cuts through a haze of steam

bringing warmth and hope in the darkness.

Moisture glistens in tiny droplets

that linger momentarily before they drop.

Ripples of light wriggling in the water

weave beautiful patterns, 

beckoning me to plunge into the bath.

 

...I am at peace.

How am I?

entry picture

Obliterating opaqueness opens up into sunlight.

Spiders of colour 

smudge the ocean.

Lapping water creates islands

of shimmering, fuzzy warmth.

It is freeing yet connecting.

I sputter and splash amongst the crevices of land.

Floating, I am curious.

I breathe a light, cooling tranquility 

and gaze as I am gently held in a sheer, cooling calm.

Colour

Damp and beautiful,

bubbles, rings rippling in the deep, waters deep.

Damp light, patches of pink, yellow and blue,

moving along the rain soaked path.

Umbrellas bobbing, dogs snuffling amongst the leaves, sniffing.

The smell of damp, dirt and soft wood drifting through the air.

Colour, damp and beautiful in the light.

Berries glow, jewels amongst the leaves.

Flowers strewn ...
