About 8½ Minutes from the Sun to the Moon to the River to My Face to the Camera, Blast Hole Pond River, Newfoundland 2012

medium: a pair of pigment based ink-jet photographic prints.
dimensions: each 33 inches high x 42 inches wide (84 x 107 cm).

A clear night, 2 a.m., the September
full moon a bright companionable sphere.

As I step into the river in high rubber waders
it drifts on the current, glints

and scatters among the ripples.
A back-eddy pool gathers its shape,

reflects the white light up to my face
then through the lens, while all around me

the boreal forest is spires of lacy black.
