Sorghum Harvest in northern panhandle W.Va., Family Roots Farm, October 2016, for Goldenseal.

The day we harvested sorghum
it did not matter if the sorghum
grew on red or blue land.
The cane was green,
the community a rainbow
of calloused hands and smiles.
The sky voted for life,
the sun for abundance,
the sap for a sweet finish,
its excess cooking off
over the wood fire, late into the night,
our differences as steam
rising to the October moon.


In October and November 2016, my focus shifted from still photography and writing to making a documentary. This is the trailer for the film, which is available to purchase on DVD ($15). Read my blog for information.
