Saugeen Road Trip: Photograph & Poem




energy moves through water
creating ever-changing riffles
an infinite number
no two alike

I am powerful
when I have my camera in hand
I capture and imprison the evanescent
waves water light time

light waves are electric and magnetic fields
energy on the move
visible light illuminates reflects
bounces off water

each ripple has its shining instant
