Imagine What is Lost

We know there is no land within what we can see with the naked eye or binoculars, and the maps we poured over in the outdoor gear store confirm this when looking due east. However, in the very early morning as the sun reaches over the top and the sky lights up exposing low hanging […]

Poem – Into the Shadows

Holding up the sky as morning settles into the fields. We pass beneath the ancient canopy and quietly fall into its shadows.

Poem – Mountain Dust

Mountains cast their shadows across my face as the distant river fills the canyon heading toward the sea.

Nature – Delicate Relationship

There is something dramatic and something many times larger than us. What surrounds and embraces us with reluctance because we are there within its midst. The thrill of venturing into unknown and undiscovered lands, into unnamed glaciers, lakes with undisturbed shorelines, trails and elevations unknown to maps, lives within us. I desire to truly experience […]

Poem – Nowhere

I walk the path half here and half there that place that has no name and when I close my eyes I become engulfed in the falling white petals from the ancient sky.

Poem – Stain

If I pull back the thick fog they still consume my eyes. If I run into the water and let go, let the waves push and pull me as I fall toward the floor, they consume my conscious thoughts and what was empty and calm becomes clouded and my next actions are in conflict to […]
