Manzanita

 

Editor Lorette Luzajic included a new poem of mine in her Ekphrastic Review. She paired it with the photo above that son Jon took some years back. It’s a great treat to me to have my words enhanced by his great images and shared with the world. I’m hoping for a shared book – someday! Here’s the link:

A Yosemite Poem in the Ekphrastic Review

Half Dome:more

I recently sat in my place beside the Tuolumne River at dawn while son Jon slumbered in the tent. I wrote a modest poem that paired up well with a Yosemite photo of his from some years back. The kid helps me get published! Thanks to editor Lorette Luzajic of the Ekphrastic Review! Here’s the link:  http://www.ekphrastic.net/ekphrastic/yosemite-tryst-by-robert-walton

The Ekphrastic Review publishes Borodin

Sometimes actually playing a piece of music leads to new understandings of the piece, new appreciation of the genius who created it. This happened for me a few years back when our Hartnell Community Orchestra played In the Steppes of Central Asia by Borodin. A poem came to me unbidden and I didn’t mess it up with too much writing. The Ekphrastic Review just published Borodin and a link to a performance of the wonderful music.
