It is about a journey among those things that initiate, inform, and inspire my mind's eye and the images and poetry that result. I have been creating and publishing photographic images for many years and have just begun to do so with my poems.

Selected Work
 
edge of day
across the prairie
the scrape of wind
 
prairie wind
burnt by endless sun
summer’s last day
 
 
 
Great Plains March
the old farmhouse locked
in silence
 
budget meeting
my mind focused on
. . . wildflowers
 
 
 
mockingbird silent
through a spring blizzard
new wind chimes
 
old windmill
shaking and clattering fills
the silence
