Beneath

Beneath by J. Binford- Bell

Beneath

Looking up through the surface
spying the earth
in all its glory
from a watery grave.

Reflections of life
passing over me
beyond my reach
and gradually beyond my desire.

I sleep in eternal rest
as the wind
ripples the barrier
between me and life.

  4. I wonder if we are all dead and when we "die" we are in fact revorn to the real world of soul and spirit. Like looking up from the bathub . Thanks, mate

  8. I like the perspective you used on the prompt. It's very thought-provoking. It reminds me of the novel, The Lovely Bones.
