Stand I At Water's Edge

Stand I at water's edge

The warmth of the sun
Your hand upon my brow

The touch of the mist
Your gentle caress

The cresting waves of the ocean
The rapture of your embrace

The shifting sands below my feet
The presence of you that once was

Stand I at water's edge.

Rose Marie Raccioppi

It Was Blue and Green, 1960, Oil on canvas, Georgia O'Keeffe, 1887–1986,Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.


  1. How beautiful..! Stand I at water's edge!! The pictures captures all senses~

  2. Tamarind, Standing at water's edge brings forth the deepest of feelings and emotions. It is as if the sounding waters and ocean winds speak of all there is to be known. In that knowing I am love itself.
