I Feel

oct-22-2016-sol-eye

as if I’ve arrived in the artic
as the sun bids adieu
for six months

as if a fog creeps over the city
enveloping structure and people
and won’t leave

as if Sol chose to set, find another
place, happier, more content, a less
overcast, locale

as if a crowd formed around me and
I cannot speak, hear, then they turned
into bars of a prison

as if a deep ache sought me out
razed me to the earth, till only
ashes remain

as if the ground around me fall
my roots wither, wane to a
barren trunk

as if the light at the end of the
tunnel is not there as I’m in
a cave

as if

Study in Blue

feb-24-2018-snow-branch

that blue sky
against white, bare
branches of slumbering trees
uncommon silence, except
squeaking footfall, marking
those before, the air, unsullied
carrying no scent, fresh
as glints, twinkling crystals
blind me, memory’s avalanche
of youth’s vigor, at play
in blanched fields
benumbed joy, ice-bound there
in the murk of memory, comes
comes, comes, warmly
pause

My Love

http://www.wendyd.ca

nearing 10 years, already

ups, downs, the gruelling

the heartbreaking, the blissful

companion, travel mate, friend

my intimate confidant

through turbulent change

smooth waters

smiles in her challenges

makes me laugh

shoos away my gloom

in her arms today

as the day this was taken

the world, the callous, brazen place

fades away

Dauntless

dec-11-2017-01

so often we seek light
where better, grander ideas lay
where a bold Sol grants clarity

still, too, solicit shadowed corners
there, secluded riches await, affixed
mine trauma, release truths, cleanse

light or shadow, when confronted
will whither to your rooted power
bringing luminosity in night, shade in day

Three music videos and counting…

I have been blessed to collaborate with the termendously talented singer/songwriter/actor Jody Quine (www.jodyquine.com).   It’s been so fun in filming the videos.  We’ve kept it simple and so far we have made each video one continuous shot, no edits.

I met Jody back in 2005 when I was filming my feature ‘Abridge’.  Jody was acting in one of the scenes and at the time, I didn’t know Jody was also a singer/songwriter.

So far we have completed three videos, Go On, From the Heart and Again.  See them below.
