Blackened Earth, Highway G215, Nearing Liuyuanzhen, Gansu Province, China

Rolling through the Ebony

Rolling through
A land of crushed ebony
Tarry asphalt dividing
The slender white lane markers
And scrubby tufts of amber

I scramble up an ebony mound
To find a landscape of ebony mounds
Growing to distant mountains
All of the same ebony skin

“At least,” I think, out loud
Into the air so dry
It swallows up the words
Right off my tongue
“the falling sun seems less
Like a fire
On a cast-iron skillet.”

Pix to Words ~ Volume I :: Harmony in Word and Form

Pix to Words Magazine ~ Volume I

I promised myself way back in 2015, “I’ll publish a book based on Pix To Words if I reach 500 followers by the end of the year.” I did, but I didn’t, so now I finally am. Motivated to provide something people could take home from my gallery exhibit, Harmony in Word and Form, now showing at Gallery Bistro, and also something to share a bit of the gallery experience with those who can’t possibly make it to the gallery, I present Pix to Words Magazine ~ Volume I. The magazine features most of the photographs, poetry and stories appearing in the gallery exhibit, with a couple additions thrown in.
