my first collaboration with mitch labuda
he agreed to a collab & suggested words with his image…
I reclined with closed eyes,
My body submerging into the dark waters.
My lengthy locks swam like seaweed about my neck & shoulders.
I felt an odd serenity within the tepid watery blanket.

Noting the soft surrealism of the drifting clouds.
Naked branches cast eerie silhouettes over my figure.
The cool wafting wind caressed my cheeks.
I consider times passed; victories & losses.
