DEPTH

by Dorothy-Jean (Dody) Christian Chapman Walking in the shallows provides a short respite from the rigors of the day. The shallows, where the superficial live in the form of insects, minnows and moss; Saltated rocks glimmer beneath the surface, their origin easily identifiable. Deeper regions beckon: The cool, swale-banked, tree laden rocky ledges, overhang the smooth flux. Satisfaction swims beneath the surface and down in the unseen depths. The flow is cool and revealing through touch, sound and intuition; Surprising eddies churn muted shining creatures toward the surface Only to see them blend darkly with the swirling grasses below. Peace and comprehension abide at this twilight level.
