Evening ghosts along the river

I could tell you how the river looks
sketched in evening light;
I know the smell of mist so fresh over the river,
and night air that parts like tired curtains,
with wet heat that sighs
and slaps the grass when you move on;

I’ve felt what a violin says
to the heart of the river ghosts
over waters edge,
and how an old man’s voice sounds best after smoking,
but a woman’s is best talking.

There are ghosts on these paths,
but they don’t hunger anymore;
hunger is for the living
not satisfied
with morning light.


It’s the weekend so …….

Five images from the Comeragh Mountains

Just a mini gallery of black and white images taken in and around the Comeragh mountains, during the winter months last year.

This coming year I will continue to capture this wild place. some how the winter feels very much at home in these mountains.
