Concerning 2 Photographs in Our Entryway
You have to think of them as totems.
Sooner or later it will grow out of the ground
and go up through your body and out the frame
of the picture,
as it pulls you into it and diagonalizes your
straight and narrow ways
Roots, rocks pull you down, grasses cover
light bounces through you and shadows lace you
trunks boldly force you into strength you
didn’t know you had
the myriad branches, light and dark
gather conversations from the air
sounds enliven as a trenchant piece of nature
stands as your guide, grounds you in chorus
gives you rooting in reality of living eyes
that caught what you missed –
you gain as a gift a power to back you up
when strength is missed.

Lenore’s photographs extract from space what is truly there at the time. What other eyes miss she captures in all its depth, contrast, interrelationship and beauty.
