Looking at pictures to be put away

originally uploaded by afternoon love in.

Who was this girl
In her white nightgown
Clutching a pair of jeans

On a foggy redwood deck.
She looks up at me tender,
Calm, surprised.

What will we remember
Bodies thick with food and lovers
After twenty years.

-Gary Snyder-


  1. lovely poem + lovely image = lovely post

    Today out here in the land of foggy redwood decks I went to the flea market, and I know I wasn't supposed to, but I just couldn't resist, I got you a few little somethings :)

    It's only fair that I get to have some shopping fun too!

  2. I love Gary Snyder! He reminds me so terribly much of my dad.

    Lovely :D

  3. I love the picture and the poem. I often have really magical moments and I wonder if I will remember them later--I think that's why I take so many pictures and have this urge to write everything down--so my labours can remember for me when my memory has faded.
