Artist's Description

Sepia can give photos a timeless quality. This path is far into the forest away from civilization where I have taken many pictures of the miracle of nature’s beauty. I walk with my dogs and feel the serenity of this special place where I lose the sense of time and space that is so necessary in our often too stressful and busy lives. The light at the end of the path suggests entrance into another realm. I want to thank Faithart, a member of RB, a brilliant artist and poet who chose to write a poem to pair with “A Timeless Path.” I would highly recommend viewing her stunning art work.

Midst the silence of the forest
I can hear my footsteps
As I go.
Somewhere above a bird is calling.
Walking along the pathway is like a treasure hunt.
Around each corner is a pot of gold.
Out of the light into the shadows and back again.
Measured footsteps matching the rhythm of the soul.
The trees are playful.
Their leaf-laden branches sway in the breeze,
Making geometric patterns with the sunlight.
But summer is retreating.
Soon the leaves that fall in twos and threes today
Will be jostling for a space below.
I must hurry.
I want to arrive before darkness spreads its shroud
And the light at the end of the pathway is quenched.
The end is the beginning.
I shall return.
Faithart
