Swamps are my latest passion.

Look through the bayou

to see tendrils

Hanging down

gnarly plants reaching up

knotted fingers grappling with your shoe lace

schlepping  to find

your foot is

no longer attached to your shoe

which is

sloww-ily disappearing into the muck

swamps have purpose & nothing stops  or stomps

The Process


regurgitated into new clean water


Waves of heat

water in the air creating golden mirages

Ghosts of what once was

plants breathing it in

moving with deliberation

an agenda only the swamp knows
