Family Albums

My entry for the TAW challenge this week "Family Albums" .  I have a few photos  of my Grandfather from my Mother`s side and this is a bit of a tribute to him.  He died when I was 3 so I don't have many memories of him but what I do have are good. I know he was a veteran (in the Navy) was a travelling salesman up and down central California and worked hard to keep our family together. When he died (as in many families things certainly changed - and not for the better).  But that is another story....

Blue World

We are the earth.
Earth is stardust come to life, a magic cauldron
where the heart of the universe is being formed.  In me,
the earth and its creatures find their voices.
Through my eyes the stars look back on themselves in
wonder. I am the earth.  This is my body.
                                                             Daniel Martin

In celebration of Earth Day 2015!

The Archivist

Since nothing is so secret or hidden that it cannot be revealed,
everything depends on the discovery of those things that
manifest the hidden.

Lands Away

There is no frigate like a book
To take us lands away
Nor any courses like a page
of prancing poetry.

Stone Angel

If you knew yourself for even one moment,
if you could just glimpse your most beautiful face,
maybe you wouldn`t slumber so deeply in that house of clay.
