Seeing Beyond

Abstract view of horizon with clouds and water, photographed through Hopewell Rocks in New Brunswick,Canada

Infinite vastness,

obscured by myriad things

like the rocks

that seem so real

but only serve to block our view

of the mysteries beyond.

Okay, I'm not a poet; I’m a prose writer. But in this case, I made several unsuccessful attempts to put into paragraph form what I was trying to say about this photo – each attempt more heavy-handed than the last. Finally, I threw out the paragraphs and wrote a verse instead. It’s a little airier, and hopefully it provides a small glimpse of the thought I was trying to convey.

Photographer’s Footnote: This is a view through the Hopewell Rocks in New Brunswick, Canada, taken during our recent trip to Nova Scotia and surrounding areas.
