This Is Where


Knee deep, in the thick,

where life begins and ends,

where soil, water, air, time, and wind

shape us and move us to where we belong.

What the water sees

is the hairy, wrinkled skin

of old men Cypress

down upon their knees

looking for the youth of time

who now are bent trees.

Marsh Tales

First Landing 016

Knobby knees of swamp

Emerge to tell the story

Of land, sea, and time


cypress knees lurking

stealing the swamp, bit by bit

as it walks away
