Sanctity

"Sanctity is not only borne
on prayer, but manifest in rare  
moments of visual perfection. 

Even forests are reluctant to 
cast shadows on new-fallen
snow."

Cherry Blossoms In December

"Cherry Baby, It's cold outside. 
Save your blooms for spring.
The Autumn Flowering Higan Tree 
blossoms will make December sing." 

-Rick Burnett Baker  


Mild autumn and winter temperatures in Western New York have everyone a titter.  Even the cherry trees.

Last Wash: Deep Thoughts Tumbled Dry



Click image to enlarge:

"Quarters. Soap. Cycle. Rinse. 
Tumble dry.  Life is ritual. 

Closing time is posted, but 
hand written.  Pay it no mind."

Waiting

"I dare not disturb this 
lonely bench in its solitude. 

An autumn leaf 
came to rest on one corner, 
waiting."

Alive



Click on image to enlarge:


alive


look to the 
soul of a forest, 
skull-bone trees -

I swear they 
see me watching, 
my eye to the sky

as the great dying 
falls crimson red 
around my feet.

Lifespans



Click on image to enlarge:

collect 


cycle and re-cycle; 
reflect and collect. 

each day is a day
seasons gather, 

and we gather 
different, the same.

Beyond Limits





"We humans create boundaries 
to set limits.  

Nature lives beyond 
all that fakery."
