Description

***SIGNED COPIES (by poet)***

In LIVING NATURE'S MOMENTS (Vox Novus Press, 2014 / Newburyport, MA), Cristina M. R. Norcross and Patricia Bashford celebrate the theatre of nature’s display, as well as pay tribute to how moments of awe-inspiring beauty can nourish and nurture the soul. Contemplative verse, hidden narratives and innovative visuals invite the reader to create a new story, one that honors our relationship with the natural world. (ISBN: 978-0-979-6733-2-0) 58 pages

PATRICIA BASHFORD is an award winning photographer and a retired professor of photography, theatre, film, and communications. A world traveler, her trespasser's eyes connect the revealed image with the rhythms that underpin the landscapes of daily living. In countries as diverse as Russia, Turkey, Cambodia, China, Greece, Ireland and the United Kingdom, she has captured images that reflect both documentary and personal visions. Pat works almost exclusively in digital formats, though her background includes the traditional darkroom. She has exhibited extensively in the Northeast in numerous solo and group shows, and sells her work to private collectors. She is listed in Women in the Arts and Who’s Who Among Professional Women.

SAMPLE POEM:

You Are Not Really Here

You are the breeze
that blows a white kitchen curtain
up high above the vision of a field,
while cornbread browns in the oven.

You are a pair of faded, leather sandals
with wooden beads decorating the toes.
They could take you anywhere.

You are the light that flies away
like lightning bugs –
the little sparks from a bonfire.

You are the mighty tide coming in,
challenging the shore.
You are the undercurrent
sending starfish into a spin.

Food will sustain you,
you have form within space.
Your body rests,
so that your spirit may travel
in the dreamtime.

You are not really here.
Your soul has another home –
your birthplace
and your resting place.
