diving deep
sky’s reflection shatters
into white light

  1. I like this one especially. First a pathetic fallacy—two insults make a compliment—then there is something earthy (fleshy, even) in the water and the reflection of the sky.

    • I would’ve wanted to thank you for your comment but do not understand it.

      • The words: “rock pool / diving deep” – as pools can’t literally dive those lines seem to me to be a pathetic fallacy and that is, as you no doubt know, attribution of human feelings to a non human entity. Here it is neither pathetic (miserably inadequate, an insult) nor a fallacy (misleading or unsound argument, another insult) but a useful poetic device (a compliment.)
        The picture: a nice combo of earth, water and air. It’s like but more abstract than Escher’s 1955 lithograph “Three Worlds”
        Sorry about the confusion.
