Can you see the waves behind my eyes
The deepest blue sea inside
Toing and froing like the tide
Washing my beach clean time and time and time again

The World in Black and White


Middle River, Cape Breton – March 19, 2015.

I was posting this photograph because I liked how much it looked like I had taken it in black and white mode when in fact it was really how the world looked around here yesterday morning. It was the calm before, yet another snow storm.

It wasn’t until I had typed the words of the title for this post that I saw a whole other story being told in this photograph.

What story do you see?

Mountains to Climb

I dreamt of your crashing beauty

hugging the sky and reflecting silver

a crush of longing

chased by a tumbled knot of emptiness
