forgotten barn…

old vines reach upward
faded red siding gives way
cracks and seams yielding

Reaching, seeking….

“I am bound to my vague memory of you…Your caresses enfold me, like climbing vines on melancholy walls. I have forgotten your love, yet I seem to glimpse you in every window. Because of you, the heady perfumes of Summer pain me; because of you, I again seek out the signs that precipitate desires…”   Pablo Neruda

athwart…’athwart?’….yes athwart

vines creep and bricks fall

the foundation sags, glass breaks

still standing athwart

submit or break away….

vines around being

comforting or confining

restrictive or safe

Searching….Reaching Out

“Was it really some other person I was so anxious to discover…or was it only my own solitude that I could not abide?”  David Markson, Wittgenstein’s Mistress

Reaching Out…………….

“Funny thing how when you reach out, people tend to reach right back. Best, then, to make sure your hand is open and not fisted.” Richelle E. Goodrich

“Sometimes, reaching out and taking someone’s hand is the beginning of a journey. At other times, it is allowing another to take yours.” Vera Nazarian

“Let a joy keep you. Reach out your hands and take it when it runs by.” Carl Sandburg

Photography: Early Risers & The Cottage

The roosters have apparently gained the wrath of slumbering neighbors in a portion of SE Portland. They start their call to duty around 0300 hrs. Well before first light or the early bird Robins first chirps, these boys have marching orders next week for a more rural environment.

photography-early risers-chickens-roosters-SwittersBI met the Roosters and their Hens in a side yard of a quaint ‘cottage’ like dwelling. It was, again, one of those “I need to stop and photograph that…” prompts. I did stop and shoot some images. A lovely, vine enshrouded house with a secret corners, an open vegetable garden and the owner emerging and enquiring as to my purpose. I explained my interest in the garden, landscaping etc. He, Ben, noticed my ‘SwittersB & Fly Fishing’ decal on the back of my rig. Before long we had discussed fly fishing (he liked larger fly patterns over smaller fly patterns: “I like fly fishing not flea fishing”), the Metolius River in Central Oregon, and fly tying. Before long, Ben had finessed an order for larger fly patterns from me, “big Stone fly nymphs and big Caddis”. I happily agreed and intend to soon drop them by and take Ben up on the “I will give you a tour” offer. A nice moment from stopping by and enjoying the view.
