A big deep breath,
here is to finding a balance.
Floating free, emerging in the big blue calm.
Fluffy waves as ornaments to the rippling sky.
Secrets the sky swimmers
and the birds guard.
Evelyn over at Filling a Hole is once again hosting the Buddha Rocks Project this week. Each day writers use a different photo as inspiration for their posts chosen from the vast library taken by Eric Alder located at Bubba’s Place Deviant Art Gallery – Buddha Rocks.

I’m afraid of flying but I love to swim… maybe I need to think of flying like swimming in the sky! Lovely poem that is very fitting to the photo.
As they say it is all about perspective. I know people who fear water but fly regularly, I wonder if the reverse would work for them!?
What a great way to look at that…LOVE this.
Thank you Evelyn! I used to always imagine that I was swimming in the sky when I was young. That photo reminded me of that.
I was dreaming about the sky being blue waves when I woke up this morning, how the birds flapping wings were causing the wake-like currents. Great poem!
Thank you Patti. That sounds like a very tranquil dream.

Swimming and flying definitely share similarities in sensations of weightlessness. Some people find freedom in those sensations, some do not. Interesting piece.
