Empires. Breaking waves.

Arcing moon. Your tiny chest.

Rise ... And fall ... And rise ...

About the Creator

Sonia Heidi Unruh

I love: my husband and children; all who claim me as family or friend; the first bite of chocolate; the last blue before sunset; solving puzzles; stroking cats; finding myself by writing; losing myself in reading; the Creator who is love.

    There's like eternity here but also fragility. I think it's empires that makes me feel like it could all come crashing down. Not the waves or the moon.

    Yes. You depict heaven and the fragility of earthly mortality all in one very intentional and poignant piece. Beautiful.
