thoughts a drift
these photos will change from time to time
Can you see it, can you hear it?
The undertone and the undertow………………… Babbling, murmuring along, always steady and constant. Creating a low liquid voice in the background as it cascades its way over stones and logs, shoving against the muddy banks. Strong yet gentle like a heartbeat meandering its way across the forest floor. Leaves and twigs swirling and twirling a backwards dance on their way downstream. Catching and pulling, pooling and bursting free. Eddies and mini currents pushing and releasing tadpoles and fry as water spiders skid across the surface only to be snatched up by the sticky tongue of a hidden bullfrog at water’s edge. Beams of sunlight casting golden hued fingers through the tree top canopy dance upon the fluid surface, and then turn a silvery palate as day gives way to night, still the water runs deep and uninterrupted. Like blood flowing through veins and emotions drifting through the heart and mind………………………..it’s the undertone and the undertow.
