From the water

She called to me from the ocean,
hand stretching above calm waters
that blended with the sky, shades of blue
and specks of white cascading beyond

that hand, frozen in a moment we shared.
Or maybe she merely wanted
to touch the sky and turned upside-down
with no thought of me.

Written for a #PoeticPicturePrompt

My name is Phillip. I live in North Carolina with my wife of 11 years and 3-year-old son, and at least for the next year, I’m on the right side of 40. (Both the interstate and existence, in years). I am a Tar Heel born and bred, and watch every Yankees game I can. My goal is to visit all 30 MLB stadiums in the next 10 years. I’ve been to 5 so far! Obviously I enjoy writing, but I also enjoy watching and reading sci-fi. I’m slowly attempting to finish my first novel, a “humorous” sci-fi romp which may be finished one day. I am a Doctor Who obsessive and choose Star Trek over Star Wars.
