gingerly, a finger
touches the surface to find
oneness in the depths
This image reminds me of when we lived in Syracuse NY, which abuts Onondaga Lake – one of the most polluted bodies of water in the country. Allied Chemical had used it for a dumping ground for its variety of industrial toxins (including some 80 tons of mercury) for decades which built up several feet of poisonous sludge across the lake bottom. Sticking your arm in the water, well, not recommended. It’s now a Superfund site, with estimates of well over $500M to get it clean enough for human use again. The weird thing is that it’s a pretty lake because of the unnatural blue water. Like the ‘1000 Flushes’ thingy for toilet bowls.
Sorry – not exactly what you had in mind, huh? 😉 I guess that’s a form of disillusion too, though…
The original title was going to be “Dissolution;” I’d say you’re pretty much on topic 😉 The color of the water sounds like a lot of man-made lakes and ponds you see out here, mostly in industrial parks and golf courses. They add blue dye to the water to make it prettier, but the illusion tends to be spoiled when the waterfalls look like grannie’s favorite hair rinse.
That right there is funny. I don’t care who you are.
The other one is: “Disillusioned? I have some great illusions for you.”
