Dreams & Delusions…

Mastering the Slide

The sodden ground
Has gotten quite slippery
It’s a good thing
I’m learning to master
The controlled slide…

I almost fell on my face in the mud scrambling back up the creek bank after taking this photo of a blooming skunk cabbage, and this is where my mind took it. I was originally going to post this to Instagram, but my photo/text editor has decided not to work for me anymore. I hope you enjoy.

Now on Instagram!

Through the Fog is now on Instagram!  Follow @throughthefogpoetry to see some of my poetry matched with my photography, if you like.  See you there.

Below is a copy of my first post, to show you an idea of what you will find there.


Calypso’s Slippers

image

Calypso calls
In her blushing glory-
“I’ll weave you
A golden skin,
Only stay,
To adore me…
I’ll keep you
Intoxicated
On the sweetest wine,
Only say
You’re eternally mine…”
Dancing in slippers,
Delicate silk…
Touching iridescent skin,
Pale as milk.
Come, adventurer,
And drink of me,
We’ll forever rule the sea…

Did you drift with me?  ; )
Thanks for playing along…

Magnolia Moon

image

Do you see me,
Dancing under the magnolia tree?
Waiting for the moon and stars,
Feeling free…
I hear your whispers,
Enchanting me…
Love is still ours,
Come and see…
💜

Cathedral

image

I never felt spiritual
In the pews,
Only bewildered
And confused,
I don’t believe in a God
Who hates,
Bashes, filters, or berates.

I worship the Love and Peace
That makes the pain of life cease…
My prayers are heard
Deep in Earth,
This knowledge-
My sacrament since birth.

The light through the trees,
Humming in vibration,
Like swarms of bees…
I complete my withdrawal
From Man’s church,
Into my Redwood Cathedral.

Dangerous Beauty

Beauty is a dangerous trap,
Don’t turn your back,
Or else, Snap!
You can never go back…

I took these photos of some cobra lilies I found while hiking in the Trinity Alps Wilderness.  They are a carnivorous plant that is native to Northern California, and are quite rare to find. 🙂
