Capturing the world with Photography, Painting and Drawing

I walk at the lands edge

The Lands edge
Nikon D700

Poem by : Kathleen Jamie

I walk at the land’s edge,
turning in my mind
a private predicament.
Today the sea is indigo.
Thirty years an adult –
same mind, same
ridiculous quandaries –
but every time the sea
appears differently: today
a tumultuous dream,
flinging its waves ashore –

Bog cotton
Nikon D700

Nothing resolved,
I tread back over the bog
– but every time the bog
appears differently: this evening,
tufts of bog-cotton
unbutton themselves in the wind
– and then comes the road
so wearily familiar
the old shining road
that leads everywhere

The road
Nikon D700
