The world turns softly not to spill its lakes and rivers. The water is held in its arms and the sky is held in the water. What is water, that pours silver, and can hold the sky?

Magnifique atmosphère, chez nous nous avons besoin de pluie pour remplir lacs et rivières. La sécheresse fait des dégâts.

The words are so poetic! I live on a river and I know the words to be true. I like the B&. It captures a moody feeling.

Your photo is so wonderfully calming, yet there is interest to draw the viewer’s eye as well.

beautiful sentiments, but those in southeast NC and eastern SC might disagree with the idea of not spilling. Your image shows the capture of the sea in a small bay in a really pretty and peaceful peaceful composition.

doesn’t it say somewhere in the Bible that there is waters in the heavens?

the flat earthers say that water never lies 🙂

A beautiful image of the calm waters. Sometimes the waters aren’t so calm and spill out onto the land rather dramatically. I prefer the smooth waters full of reflections.
