Naked Prairie Dust

Naked Prairie Dust

A footfall raises faint
Clouds of prairie dust
Lost in thought
Sinking into prairie silence
Where even thinking
Becomes too noisy
The sun and breeze
Caressing muscles
No longer hidden

Thoughts vanish into
The dust leaving only
Breathing to tell a story
Of being alive
Emptiness that fills
And heals scars and
Long forgotten fears

Eyes see without a need
To analyze, categorise or
Record as a treasure
Ears hear soft sounds
Of life on the prairie
Touching the sounds
And letting them go free

Another footfall and
Another universe of
Naked prairie dust
Unveils hidden mysteries
Buried deep within


About A Naturist's Lens

I am a therapist that focuses on the use of active imagination, photograph, dreamwork and Jungian Psychology in order to uncover the whole person hidden beneath layers of personae, complexes and clothing.

  1. Thank you for sharing this verse with me . I can identify with the feelings , the experience ….perhaps not so eloquent at expression . None the less as someone who is new to the naturist community I am an old hand at dealing with depression and found your thoughts about your journey on the Camino ( I have been thinking about doing this myself for quite awhile ) a great source of wisdom . Real insight about what it is and how it affected someone like you – someone like me …. not the romance I might have imagined . The photographs are however beautiful and inspiring … Thank you again .

    • David, I am glad that you found something to value in the poem. I am pleased that you are searching through some of my other blog sites and finding things of value. I hope to be back on the Camino next autumn.

      • Maybe I’ll join you . haven’t exactly made a plan but thought the Fall emight be the best time to do it . Can you recommend a guidebook ?

      • John Brierly’s guide book is the best for the Camino from Saint Jean Pied de Port. The “Miam, Miam, Dodo” books are the best (IMHO) for treks through France.
