Maybe She's Just Tired

by Jade Silva

Inspired by Ophelia Sir John Everett Millais (1851-52)

A meadow

White Flowers grow from the side

next to the flowers lies a log

moss floats on the water

flowers of many colors

red, blue, purple, float

along with them there is a woman

her dress floats with her

grey, with white detailing

her abdomen sinks to the bottom

her face and chest float

her hands are separated

they seem to have held the flowers

however out of exhaustion

they seem to have let go




let go

is she alive?

her eyes are open

but they are blank and tired

she just floats
