""From the Forest Floor- Random Moments of Beauty" 2017-2019  

This series began after an enchanted walk through Cosm,  visionary artist Alex Gray's retreat center in Wappinger, New York. I don't think it's a coincidence that what appeared that day was magical and began my fascination with all the small living and decaying things below my feet.

"Found"  2019

Found by  Marla Sterling

Found,

the fatal chaos of fallen limbs from former hemlock,
so often graced
           with cardinal carmine
                    oceanic jay
                               dayglow finch

found,
            in that dead tangle of splintered wood
                        lichen                 shards
blasted branch nodes,

          
             yet, found

here, this morning, at eye level,

gragrance weighting the limb -

honeysuckle,

flowing still
from bumble bee yellow to cloud milk white
where honey waits to be pulled
            by children

                       to the tips
                                of their egar tongues.
