“Combinations”

Laurence Brauer and Barbara Swift Brauer

“By bringing together our individual media photography for one, poetry for the other within a single frame, we express our common love for wildness. Sight and sound only two of the countless ways of interpreting the redemptive power of the natural world.”
Laurence & Barbara

Above San Geronimo

Above San Geronimo

December dawn over Loma Alta and Blueberry Ridge
reaches west to where we stand expectant of grace

above the dark meadows simmering in shifting mist,
the watershed and salmon-simple streams.

First birdsong answers the emptying sky,
the air thins and warms. Names return

to winding streets as the fog lifts
over the town and the emboldened sun

flares in wild branches
spreading tall shadows at our feet.

Yes, we whisper to the morning. Yes.

Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
