Ice Dragon

DSCF6349.2 RSC

The rock of the Berry Falls
Has an Ice Dragon hiding in plain site
He rests between the cracks
In between the light

Whisper shadow footfalls
Tails rush to burn
Wind shift through
Other sides emerge

Presence Rising

Lake Superior | Lutsen, MN | 2012

“Beauty is composed of many things and never stands alone. It is part of horizons, blue in the distance, great primeval silences, knowledge of all things of the earth… It is so fragile it can be destroyed by a sound or thought. It may be infinitesimally small or encompass the universe itself. It comes in a swift conception wherever nature has not been disturbed.”
~ Sigurd Olson


Deeply Exposed

Drawing a life between rough edges
Obstacles of varying size, shape, matter
Strength shadowed at times
By casualties beneath tough exteriors
Rings of wisdom hidden
Gnarled pockets of thought
Seasonal whispers hushed
Misplaced trust deeply exposed


Been There

Been There
Fragile Strength
Broken Gentleness
Blinded Faith
There Again

Rock On!

My grandmother taught me how to hunt rocks
she showed me how to study and
delicately view each stone
to examine the qualities
texture, color, shape
when I feel the weight of a stone in my hand
there is a vibration, a connection
as if I am holding the hand of my grandmother
