Twilight Dips

 

Twilight dips

elegant fingers

over treetops

into shimmering lakes

deepest blue

ripples spread

fingers twirling

swirling symmetry

calling out to fish

from deepest depths

fish rise

fish mate

fish spawn

fish die

circles

cycles

fishly life.

-by Debra Parmley

    1. The picture was taken at my first book launch at Burke’s Books in Memphis in 2009! Everything I was feeling that evening is in that picture. The dream come true. Very much in my element. Holding my first novel in my hands and being able to share it with the world. A top of the mountain achievement and living the dream.
