Welcome to my photo journal blog! Here are my first drafts of poetry & prose inspired by my nature photos fresh and #NewThisDay

#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream

A long, glorious walk this morning, but no time to write about it. Instead, I find this wonderful poem by Alicia Ostriker:

 

As if there could be a world

Of absolute innocence

In which we forget ourselves




Black dogs, tan dogs,

Tubes of glorious muscle—



Pursuing pleasure
— Excerpt: The Dogs at Live Oak Beach, Santa Cruz, Alicia Ostriker

To read the entire poem, and even listen to a recording of the poet reading it, go here.
