They say Jesus walked on water
but today I am Isis on the Nile
Queen of Ra whose radiant fingers
splay the shadow of form into beautiful
Medusa stirring Poseidon’s passion
into the weightless ecstasy of light
About this poem…I really wanted to include a photograph, but alas I have yet to venture out onto a paddle board with a camera. I was inspired to write this poem while observing the reflection, or rather, absorption of my shadowed form upon the water. The way both the water and the light had captured my form and transformed it, recreating it into a weightless goddess of light. It is quite mesmerizing to watch the play of light and water upon one’s shadow.
