falling sky, erupting earth –
a tree hopes for peace
after the sun sets
an obsidian silence
slowly fills the sky
I took this picture on a disposable Kodak way back when I didn’t have a cell phone. The photo was hidden away in an old shoebox until I rediscovered it while searching for something else that’s totally unrelated. After some reflection, I thought of this poem.
beneath rustling grass
memories of wind and sky
spark in hollow skulls
A kid from the neighborhood reacts to my buddy’s pickup truck after it was totaled in an accident. Fortunately, nobody was seriously hurt.
I couldn’t help but notice how similar the kid looks to the figure in the famous Edvard Munch painting, popularly known as, The Scream. *

I had a lot of fun with Friday’s Photo series, so I thought I’d try one more today. The top picture is the original – I posted it back in January. It’s a statue that presides over the Haserot tomb in Lake View Cemetery in Cleveland, Ohio. Below it are three variations of the original. Enjoy.
The top picture is an original I posted last December (Wild Grass and Turbine). Since then, I discovered the color curves feature in a free photo editing program. I used it to make three pretty weird variations. It was a lot of fun.
