Still Learning To See

“Lost,” a poem by David Wagoner

A poem by David Wagoner, “Lost,” appeared in The Writer’s Almanac this morning. I want to share it, even though I don’t have permission to do so, and take the liberty of posting a copy here:

I honor the poet and the poem and the forest with a small selection of images I’ve made over the years. While none of them can replace reality, I find they can act as a compass when I’m lost, as I so often am. I’ve learned to trust, nearly always, that the forest can find me.
