A Vivid Blue Abyss--16x20 August 2011

Standing, forlorn on the edge of a cliff

Frightened and alone

Buffeted by strong chill winds

The eerie blue stretching out endlessly below


The jagged black bulk thrusts upward

A seemingly insurmountable pile

Deeply rooted in obscurities and delusions

An exhausting climb up through the jumble


And then a leap of trust into the unknown

As a silhouette of color separates from the black form

Shimmering as it rides the current toward infinity

A last glimmer as it dissolves into the blue
