Norfolk

Shadow of a seal
in the myriad shapes 
of the waves. 
An optical illusion 
that snaps self absorption 
to a tottering upright 
is that really… do you see what I see?

    1. Yes. It was a peculiar late summer day when this shadow, that turned out to be a seal popped its head out of the ocean and we all forgot whatever it was we were talking about. Thanks for reading Susan.

  2. Love it! I remember seeing dolphin shadows in the waves when we lived in Florida many moons ago. It is magical. Happy Christmas to you, too, Jonathan. xo

  3. I LOVE this one, Jonathan, I LOVE it......so rich in its layers.....like looking through the water at the surface of it and seeing, something deeper, something wonderful......

    you so simply, so profoundly, knock it out of the park.

    Wishing you a beautiful week leading up to Christmas my friend,
    warmest,
    Elizabeth

  4. We can sit inside our own heads so much, it can be a surprise to be snapped back into the outer world :)
    Hope you have a great festive season!

    1. Yes, that's exactly what I was trying to convey.
