Netherworld

photobucket



life blood 
seeps slowly from veins
seeking collapse, closure
blue tinged plasma 
becomes one with the ice

  1. What a unique response this is, Helen. I love the opposition between the life blood (warmth) and the ice.

  16. This is a haunting piece, Helen. Your view of the cold, blue water as plasma, with the bystander disinterested in the demise happening in front of her/him... or is it the depression of the one who lies there dying? So much depth to this one! Amy
