Welcome to John Moser's Image Workshop / Playground

In the Creek Bottom

Some days I live for the glimpse

of this or that creek

choked with debris

bottles, road oil or limbs

I can sometimes use to cross

if they fall just right

or naked, exposed at a spot

past the guard rail for a split

second, speeding down 95

the trickle past clinging vines

and the grip of sand silting.

  1. I’m always impressed with you, brother, but these last two posts are blowing me away.

      Thank you! One of my new year’s resolutions is to write 365 post-it-note poems this year. Lately, I’ve been matching them up with photos and/or using photos for the inspiration for the poems or vice-versa.

  2. O3

    I was on a roll photographing these urban creeks in town when some mallard ducks came flying out at me from one of these sadly polluted waterways. It was beautiful, yet not. I also have been trying to stop at all the swamp locations you get a fleeting glimpse of driving, so the poem hits home for me too.
