Behold I go forward, but He is not there;and backward, but I cannot perceive Him..But He knoweth the way that I take: when He hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold. Job 23: 8-10

To and fro

Forward I go

Ahead to see

The face of God

In leaves of gold...

On the ground...

Backward I turn

Myself around

Behind to learn

The tree is old~

Leans to one side;

It is odd

And tried

Like me...

Poetry by me, AJP


I shot these two SP's of myself in November of 2009 and made it into a diptych. I considered myself an odd couple when I met myself forward and backward by the old Dutchess Apple Tree
