UNSPECIFIED, UNSEEN, UNDOCUMENTED

paper shots 2 - 62

A wrinkle on the surface of the water, while the breeze also stirs the top of what looks like wheat but it’s not – there was a book in a village shop, Companion to the Flora of the Lakes: one would know now, had the book been bought. Photos; Underexposed, overexposed. There’s a majestic tree, its trunk half in water, its branches shading a corner of this little bay, green berries, red berries, white tiny flowers, and two wild ducks (approximation necessary) swimming by, their little heads back and forth, the water parted in triangles whose sides will always vary.

  1. Paper Shots, your photography is compelling and I like how it informs your literary art — like snapshots come to life. Your last line reads like a profound statement on the wake we all make, traveling through life: “the water parted in triangles whose sides will always vary.”
