Future Yet Written

Delta Lake State Park

I am in double trouble.

Since I have been on this journey of photography I see the world around me differently. Images appear everywhere I look. Driving the car can be interesting as I am constantly seeing new opportunities for my camera. The way the light is falling on a tree or the color of the sky as the sun rushes toward the horizon.

Now words are coming out too. I have used the titles of my images to convey a little more about each image. It might have been a thought or feeling as I took the image, or they might come after as I’m processing. Lately, more words have been coming out and yesterday I needed to stop along the way to work to record a few that kept playing in my head…

Hidden beneath the surface
Never quite awake
A thought, a feeling
Waiting to escape
Held in reserve
For fear of rejection
This part of me
So long forgotten

Your words reached within
And untied the knots
The spirit set free
To soar now unbound
What heights will be reached
The limit is endless
My story unfolds
The future yet written.

  1. “The future yet written,” I’ve been wondering about the future a lot lately and I don’t know why. I’m trying not to worry about it, but it feels, so often, like something very bad is just around the corner.

    • It does seem like the other shoe is dropping, but I do what I can and try not to let the rest overwhelm me. I enjoy the peacefulness I get when I’m out exploring with the camera.

  2. Mike!! I’m so happy and so excited about these changes in you and to be a part of this journey with you! It’s the best kind of trouble to be in, trust me! Your poem is amazing. Truly! And your prose and photo added to it or from it… Who knew this was in you? It stuns me really. ❤
