  • Poem

    Sands of Time

    Around the lake on winds of change
    The sands of time did rearrange
    To shift terrain along the shore
    Resculpting landscapes to explore

    One of the early lessons I learned as a child growing up in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, in the city of Marquette on Lake Superior, was the enormous power of Mother Nature. Though some geographical locations remain relatively unchanged over time, the shorelines of my youth were renewed with each major storm — altering beaches and sandbars, as well as gigantic boulders washing up on to the harbor breakwall.

    This vintage photograph highlights the shores of Gitche Gumee to the northwest of Marquette, near Little Presque Isle. If interested, it’s available on a variety of prints and other items in my galleries at Pixels, Redbubble and ArtPal.

    Enjoy the great outdoors!


  • Byrd Lake Waterfall

So, visit my galleries at Pixels and/or ArtPal to select the perfect accent piece, for yourself or to give as a gift. Thanks very much!
