Unarmed man with
from applebox cameras
Traveling West Texas
Driving a two-horse
ice wagon delivering
ice to the curandera,
Asking someone today
to direct their cameras
toward vanishing lifestyles,
primitive culture, old faces,
vagabond with bedroll,
chuckbox, and camera
life as he sees it.
Sending freelance stories
stuffed in a cannister
via carrier pigeons.
Writers and artists
who worked in western
pulp genre, those who could
adapt, went on to greater
gone, sadly those
writers and photographers
to fill our eyes with wonder
and fire our imaginations!

Absolutely mesmerizing; you carry us back in time and unfold each scene on our eyelids and imaginations. I agree with Peter, you are a Poet to look to for inspiration, one of the greats. BRAVA, my friend, BRAVA!
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

|Cometh the hour, cometh the man or woman Sage !
We are looking for the Leading Lights who will propel us into the 21 st Century with verve and imagination, you are one of those foremost writers who epitomises the free spirit that is absolutely necessary and vital, to be able to understand and interpret the past and prevailing climate we exist and function in, and be able to transmit an honest,potent and timeous message to the hungry and thirsty masses, who are devoid of momentum, direction and inspiration in life !
Be bold, be imaginative, because imagination is genius !
