under the water a parallel universe is hidden, waiting to be discovered. beyond the deep surface, secrets wait. harsh ocean tides buff the clifftop into a smooth surface, craggy and always looking just weeks from being fully eroded. sunlight glows off the plane of the water, skimming over it, artless and hinting at … Continue reading water + universe + buff
