Old Poems

I did this photography project a couple of years ago. I pasted the photographs on photographic background paper I had made. I sold the actual project but I still have the photographs and poems, so I thought I would post them.

This is a photograph I took at the Great Wall in China.
Into the Light
 
 
As note once played
So are men fated to fade
Like spider’s lace
Our brilliance holds a fleeting place
 
Individuals become lost to sight
But humanity will not cross into the light
Our hold on time’s hand is tenuous
But our orbed echos remain luminous
 
Every man’s existence is vapor
A diaphanous vesper
But our legacy is not quellable
Our imprints will remain indelible
 
Into the light series of photographs
Into the Light

 When the black hounds of night

Enter into the blinding light

The lurking shadows of fear

Are finally burned clear

Photograph for the into the light series
Into the light
  
Footprints on the pavement black
Leading those who would not look back
Footprints in the dead of night
Follow the shadows into the light
 
Photograph for the into the light series
Into the light
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Startled into panicked flight
A grey winged kite
Explodes into the protective light
 
Photograph for the into the light series
Into the light
 
 
 
 
Past the guardian of the hedge
A swaying sentinel on heaven’s edge
I glimpse the ethereal delight
Only seen gazing into the light
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Photograph for the into the light series
Into the light
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Ghost dancer clothed in white
Whirl and swirl into the light
Whether spirit, spector, shade or shadow
Twirl to an heavenly tempo
 
Photograph for the into the light series
Into the light
 
 
 
 
 
Descend from on darkened height
Into dreams of sacred light
Transcend the deepest doldrum
Into doors of inspiration
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Photograph for the into the light series
Into the light
 
 
 
Fly into the flaring light
Ignore the fear and doubt the *height
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Photograph for the into the light series
Into the light

 

 
 
 
 
 
Promenade into the white
Past the gate a brilliant light
