Tidal Pools

The beauty of water is that it is an element we need, but one in which we cannot live. We stand ankle deep in tidal pools , feeling safe, or swimming in oceans where creatures beyond our comprehension dwell. In Barbados years ago I went down in a small submarine to view a world I could never inhabit for more than those few minutes. A world unconcerned with my own. Fishes of translucent colors, plants with reaching hands, and slithery snakelike beings. It took my breath away for only a moment before I understood how limited we land bound creatures are.


About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
