...because she had no speech.

Her eyes were the colour of distant love,
her twin arms were made of white topaz.
Her lips moved, silent, in a coral light...

Entering the river she was cleaned,
shining like a white stone in the rain,
and without looking back she swam again...


~pablo neruda - an excerpt from the fable of the mermaid and the drunks

Wonderful combination of texture and image Dennis, you have brought her to life from
the original image, wonderful tones of movement, a beautiful piece, would love to see that
water animated. :D :rose:
and the Neruda piece looks an interesting read....is it a book or a short story?
