Wild Geese: A Poem by Mary Oliver

You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. Meanwhile the world goes on.Continue reading “Wild Geese: A Poem by Mary Oliver”

colors

deep in my earth your words survive there beneath the ageless, the night, the moon’s silken eyes deep in my earth your words quietly stroke a palace of blues, of grays, of an artist reborn as a lover awoke

skip: a haiku

read me a story only skip to the last page where it all began Doors are a subject I love taking pictures of not only in appreciation of their architecture, but for the dreamer in me that can’t help but imagine up worlds lingering behind every one I stumble upon. What is beyond that halfContinue reading “skip: a haiku”

honeydew

last bites of summer in a honeydew bed as drips of venus and autumn leaves wed It is the power of our senses that offer such inspiration to the creative within us and my taste buds often rise to treat me with such.

I giggled at first sight of the morning’s mist in its stream along the lake at the irony of theContinue reading “mist”

salt: a haiku

trimming the distance salt water blankets bare thoughts waves caress slowly I captured this image along the shore of Hatteras Island in the Outer Banks of North Carolina as a storm was approaching. Bird watching along the shore line is enjoyable to me, in watching their flight, their determined (and sureness) in finding a mealContinue reading “salt: a haiku”

wild: a haiku

in the wild of me special thoughts rain blissfully forest grows louder I captured this image while in one of the bayou’s outside of New Orleans in Louisiana. I love the look (and feel) of Spanish moss and how it seemingly rains throughout the branches of trees. A moment after I captured this image, IContinue reading “wild: a haiku”

benthos

beyond the shallows where your waves steep extracting the flavors of the sea in the rush of darkness, i bloom most silently into this garden of benthos, a blushing bride i become where you in most ardent steps nakedly roam clutching the tapestry of emeralds woven about my hair draping upon the coral of myContinue reading “benthos”
