This shot from one of the look out decks near the peak of the Aiguille du Midi in Chamonix, France, makes it easy to see why the Mt. Blanc massif is such a climbing, hiking, and skiing paradise. Shot in August 2017.
I really like this juxtaposition of a delicate, dried, end of summer flower head imposed against the looming figure of Mt. Blanc, the tallest mountain in Europe.
Came across a flock of sheep on the first day of the Tour du Mont Blanc, and this one let me get close enough to take a friendly photo.
Bathed in a sacred starlight
Carrying nothing but light
From the solstice you were born
From light we all drew breath
In night you disappeared
As you hid beneath the whispers
And lay amongst the stars
I found you dancing
Upon a gilded floor
Sculpted from love
The dance floor of the muses
The dance floor of the heavens
This limestone quarry in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan used to be one of my favorite swimming spots as a kid, but it’s been closed down and mostly abandoned for the last few years.
Poetry reading and book signing for “Grains of Sand”!
I’m excited to announce that I’ll be reading from “Grains of Sand” at Cultivate Coffee & TapHouse in Ypsilanti, MI on Saturday, May 6th. You can find the event invites on Facebook:
Too close to the sun
I reach, and I fly
You, radiance and magic
Melt away my wings
