I wish I could sail away

I go on to compare that infinite silence with this voice,
and I remember the eternal and the dead seasons,
and the living present, and its sound,
so that in this immensity my thoughts are drowned,
and shipwreck seems sweet to me
in this sea.

    Wow… seems as if with the last few, you’ve moved into more fantastic, whimsical, dream-like imagery. I really like this one — the sail boat almost looks like it’s made out of folded paper. Great work, johanna.

    as ususal you mentioned what i had in mind……this is mysterious for me, as no relationship in reality helps to be undrestood.

    it seems that the girl in the image has hugged lips whitout any kiss, we’ve never imagined this. I got surprised by the elements I see. the colors show the sense of drowning with a livid & free corpse.
