They are clumsily awkward. the broken snowballs, belated bubbles, moonlight glows, seeded pebbles, flawed bokeh...

waking blurry-eyed from a dreaming from gazing into the glowing ripples for too long.

throwing a pebble you find from the ocean into the sky,

suspending it in the expanse,  it lingers there, embedded, flying and falling deeper in silence.
