The Wall


Wall
by Denise Levertov

When distant ocean's big V of silver
reaches straight up, rearing
between the hills that hold it,
don't you feel you could go and go
swift as hurricane till you
flung yourself at its wall, its
blue wall of spider silver,
and passed like Alice
into the blind mirror?

I am at such a loss for words for this one, Pam.

Perfection.

There's not much more to say.

*speechless*

This painting looks like pure freedom to be whatever you want to be, open to the universe, nothing holding you back any longer.

Pam Tucker said...

Bill: Thank you! Wouldn't it be nice to feel like that? ;)

A beautiful piece and precious words to go with it as well...i think it is divine. And I felt this way exactly a year ago. Wow!
