Sea Foam (ONE WORD PHOTO CHALLENGE)

In response to One Word Photo Challenge

~*~

Yet there are moments when

The walls of the mind

Grow thin

When nothing is unabsorbed

collage sea - befunky

And I could fancy that we might

Blow so vast a bubble

That the sun might set and rise in it

And we might take the blue of midday

And the black of midnight

And be cast off and escape

From here and now

but to explore; to hear vague,

ancestral sounds of boughs

creaking, of mammoths,

to indulge impossible desires to

embrace the whole world with

the arms of understanding,

impossible to those who act.

— Virginia Woolf, The Waves
