Tree on Cliff

We have been visiting this location on Lake Superior for 10-years. Through every season and every weather pattern.

Poem – Transformation

I watch the sun rise from distant cold moving water. White-capped waves emerge from the horizon and over time they will arrive at my feet standing on the rock strewn shoreline covered in clear ice. I imagine staying here through the passing months when the deep winter takes hold of this land and my body […]
