I came across some pics I took this spring in black and white. I thought the depth of the tone made them wonderfully artistic. When you think of Spring, you think "color", lots of beautiful color. However, looking through these images made me "feel" the crisp fresh air of a cool Spring day. Sometimes it's good to see beyond the "color"....
My one and only, Rickey in March 2000 at Ernie and Bert's in Delft, Holland. He had lost a tooth earlier that morning. ~Taken with a Minolta 35mm film.
This morning I sat among the trees and the breeze and conjured up this little poem, I love sitting in the woods on a breezy day and "listening" to the trees "sashay". The feeling of one with nature and the universe, The power of the wind and the gentle tune of the songbird, the awesomeness of life and living.
in my circle of wilderness...
the silence of everything but the birds,
singing in the echo of the trees
The trees giggle and sashay
dancing all around
Oh sun, my universe, where are you
You shine bright with only a "patch" of light
I see you, but do you see me?
in my circle of wilderness (delusions)
Then, suddenly the faceless dancer tickles my cheek
bringing a feeling of existance and peace...
I am here
