Electric Waves

This is definitely one of my favorite shots. I was lucky, too, as the conditions were perfect to reveal this mesmerizing dance of water and light.

The Mind is a Mirror

Reality whirls with images

Dancing shadows of sound and color

Shaping the illusion of separations

Like shattered glass

Carving out concepts

Flung upon the mirror’s surface

Reflecting back on the self

Veiling its true nature

For a profoundly brief moment
I escape the void
Flinging myself off timeless rocks
Arcing through the air
Water without restraint
A tumultuous trip
For such a profoundly brief moment
Before I fall back into oblivion
Memories that define my consciousness, my very being
Absorbed into the river
That flows without end

Wrinkles in the Mirror


He loved
Only once
With kisses plentiful
Planted along lover’s cheek

He fell
Only once
With ripples abundant
Perishing along the shoreline

He cradled
Every hour
With moments infinite
Wrinkles rolling along this cold, mirrored surface
