Listening for the words in a quiet corner of the night. The fiction, poetry, and photography of Jason Evans.
Glad I popped by, Jason.What a lovely poem.So clearly the woods and hinterland embrace you as much as you do them. :-)
Thank you for the walk in the woods!
I love reading your thoughts and observations. And, I feel so honored to share this small piece of Earth with you: such a guardian of nature. I hope it will always be our utopia. I'm sure the creatures who truly own it will welcome us for years to come.
Jason:You have such a natural affinity for bringing photos to life with just a few words... that's a real talent.Quick Monday Brainstorm from Out of Nowhere:Think you could offer a "contest" here where people send in pictures of nature (or whatever you'd prefer - birds, plants, dirt, water, sky, bark), then you could choose a winner and write a poem about it? I'd like to see that.Conversely, perhaps you could display a photo and visitors could write poems about it. (I just love the co-composing opportunities blogging provides.)Incidentally, thanks for dropping by my site today. My next blog topic will be less likely to make you cringe!Angelique
The picture of the foliage and the wood frog is really lovely, Jason. I do like the way you see things.
Suzan, perhaps the pull is stonger than I think.JLB, happy to take you all along. :)Miranda, we'll leave it a better place, I think. It will certainly leave us better people. I look forward to many more quiet moments of sharing it with you.Angelique, having people send pictures would be fun! I've done that twice before, and both turned into some of my favorite writing. One is the poem, "In the Shadow of Burnaby Light" and the other is the short story "Diamond Shoals." As for the reverse, I occasionally run flash fiction contests using a picture as a writing prompt. I'm due for one soon!Kaycie, thanks for stopping and taking a moment to share my perspective. :)
this just makes me long for a walk in the woods. just to get lost among the trees for a bit.
Kate, funny you should say that. This is a bit embarrassing, but for a little while, we got lost on a particularly rugged part of our land. We ended up on our neighbor's land without realizing it.All I can say is, slopes and ridges are crazy makers. Beware!
Beautiful, all beautiful.
Absolute Vanilla (& Atyllah), great to see you back in a new corporeal form!
No one here but us leaves. :-)
