Poetry: Wade In

A lovely poem, written by Lois Heger,
inspired by the beautiful art work of Karen Turckes.

Wade In
By Lois Heger

Wade in the water
Spoken in a language of feelings that words can't touch
Numbers can't calculate or define
This is women's work
A swath of color
A splash of silk
A float of organza
Transparent to barely being
Yet strong enough to cast a shadow

Soothing salty fluid hits air and becomes foam
Light bends through a canal of blue
And casts patterns deeper than we could imagine
Beauty is in the troubled water
But also power in the
Water that whispers in colors
Don't think
Wade in
Do your work
