Down South

Follow the Path

Even when the path is

washed over with danger,

Take a bold step

into the unknown,

That the waters might

bleed into your sore feet...

Ancient Waters

Long before time began,

Waters spilled over these rocks,

Creating an artist's aqueduct...

Day in the Life of a Pier

Darkness flees a sleeping pier,

As the waves ready to meet the day,

Until the sun fades and the credits begin to roll...

Nature's Edifice

Follow the fractyled branches

into the sweeping limbs,

Until you find the heavy

rings of time,

And realize you are long outlived

by Nature's edifice...

Munson Island, Key West


The sailboat disappears, searching for the death of a rubicon,

As we float our livings towards mounds of reeking sargasm,

Surrounded by the immortal film of the sea...

Fragile System

The powerful cascades love the beautiful sunlight,

But things we love will be our downfall,

What a fragile system to be brought down by two month's drought...

Wind Riding, Water Still

Spanish moss rattles through spring air,

Allowing the wind to manifest itself as palpable,

As it rides rays of sunlight over the effulgent bridge...


Coursing over the edge,

Falling down times three,

The Trifecta...

Grandfather Mountain

Grandfather Mountain watches the valley below with a stern visage,

Grandmother Sky opens herself to a new visitor,

Who is intent on listening to the ways of Mother Earth...



Muddy waters jog through a Carolina floodplain,

Giving the trees a place to drop thier shadows,

A symbiotic love for all to enjoy...

Behind the Falls


Chase the promenade around rivers and streams,

Follow its curves down behind the falls; a wonderous sight,

Meant not for me, but for the adventurer's spirit...
