I live at the eastern edge of the Kansas Flint Hills, one of the remaining remnants of earth’s tall grass prairies.  I focus on my place in it and with my camera on its details.  Nature’s images are transitory, often evanescent.  I try to perceive some sense of their essence and preserve it in paint and print and text.

Journal entry: 8 September

The grasses write the manifest lines

of preamble to autumn.

Their summer reservoir of chlorophyll

drains away from blade and stalk

to draft a polychromatic radiance

across the parchment of the pasture.

Journal entry: 7 January

Last night’s blizzard spread a thick blanket

over the  cropped winter grasses of the pasture

and the snow in the roadside ditches

which bind its edges has been sculpted

by the fingers of the wind

into a white velvet ribbon.
