May 24, 2015. This is another flash back — to ocean waves breaking on huge chunks of black lava, on the beach of Molokai late 2012. I was there for a week of photography opportunity. I encountered many unanticipated inner churns, impossible to reflect in photography alone. One evening at sunset, I set the camera down on a rock, sat myself down on an adjacent rock, and turned to poetry. I was grateful later that I’d snapped a couple of photos beforehand.
The image is of a wave hitting the rocks. These came and splattered came and splattered — rhythmic, intense — hypnotic!
