That bright shimmering

These are the layers
I see today --
the fluff on the surface,
all foamy and bright,
and the reflections
that lie beneath --
patterns that shift
according to what I'm seeing,
and what I've seen;
what I'm knowing
and what I've known;
what I'm hearing
and what I've heard...
and then there is
that dark looming underneath,
and -- thank heaven --
the patch of light
that streams in from above;
the hint of possibilities
shimmering like a bright and golden bird
in the corner.

The reflections in this image and how they work on the perspective of the photo are fascinating.
