i will wade out
till my thighs are steeped in burning flowers
I will take the sun in my mouth
and leap into the ripe air
with closed eyes
to dash against darkness
in the sleeping curves of my body
Shall enter fingers of smooth mastery
with chasteness of sea-girls
Will i complete the mystery
of my flesh
I will rise
After a thousand years
And set my teeth in the silver of the moon
These pictures are posted in sequence of my walk. I love the aqua waters of Lake Huron against a endless horizon. Located at the tip of the thumb of Michigan, Port Austin is know for fishing i.e. lake trout, walleye, yellow perch, smallmouth bass, brown trout, salmon and steelhead. It was a quiet and rainy day with very few people at the pier. One of the best walks for scenery if you enjoy walking to the "ends of the earth."
There is a band "Lord Huron" that named themselves after Lake Huron. One of their songs is entitled "Ends of the Earth"
"Oh, there's a river that winds on forever
I'm gonna see where it leads
Oh, there's a mountain that no man has mounted
I'm gonna stand on the peak"
Dusk to early evening images of the beach at Port Austin on Lake Huron. The lake was very still and slimmers like blue glass with very few waves. Lake Huron is large and deep but totally different from an ocean with no tide and very little breeze. I understand that these great lakes can be treacherous in rough weather and storms and have such large waves that they can and have destroyed large freight cargo vessels. Peaceful images like these can be deceiving.
