Riverine- (The band Haoma recorded this)


Glisten and wake,
In dappled light
A hypnotic chorus,
Drenched whispers
Kissing stone,
Caressing moss
Singing salmon songs
Silent discussions,
Marine, riverine
Ever coursing
Toward the sea.

Didn't mean to be either.
I just though the image 'instinct' was art.
art: something that depicts something it's not.
Still: I like it. alot.
Just sayin!
Can I buy a print????

I write a bit of poetry...


Promises Broken

It has been too many years
Since I fished it…
This little black jewel
Favorite little river
Near the coast
At the cusp of salt
That I have loved


For decades now...
Inconsequential it seems?
As it has been
To my surprise eviscerated
With clear cutting
Silt run off
Filling holding water


Convinced that I need
To be more aware
Get more active
Be an advocate
for things I love
I feel ashamed
That I didn't know...


Did anyone speak up?
In the din of quiet…
It created jobs in the woods…


The new green is
The color of mud and sand
Toppled trees and under story
Of devils club, scrub alder
And Himalayan blackberries...
And a sanctity
Of promises broken.

Happy to see the northern migration of some talented folks from the south.

Is the northward migration because of global warming, or did I miss something back on the old planet?

Nope, nothing happened on the old planet. This is a neat site, very active and the humor of some of the posts reminds me of the original Virtual Fly Shop. Folks post from all over the country here so I figured I might as well jump on the band wagon.

Yep, the best board in the west.

Mumbles will argue the best of all in the world and for all I know he maybe correct but for me it is the best in the west.

To the north, where the cold comes from​
To the south, where the light comes from​
To the west, where the sun sets​
To the father sun, to the mother earth"​

Skip, click on your moniker at the right upper corner of the page and open your profile page. The question avatar should be shown. Click on the avatar and that should open a message box where you can search and insert your own avatar.
