Photo by Meg Boscov

[Editor’s Note: This ongoing Sunday feature pairs photographs from Meg Boscov with a thought (or two) from the managing editor about focusing on tiny things to find something significant. Click on the picture itself to view at full size.]

 

 

O, Earth, bereft of your brood of shepherds, you now revive. Your first-parents’ depopulated temples revolt against their origins, now bob as hulls on this unmeasured map. Trees grow adventurous in the fatal air, unfouled. The disease removed, their anger breaks, like the steep waves caressing limbs and weathered trunks. O, Earth! You no longer mourn at dawn, no longer pray to get even at dusk, no longer blow breaths in vain. Triple-colored bows adorn the present. For the albatross and other islanders, the preserved sylvan grove shines as the fairest flame.

Meg Boscov is a photographer who lives and works outside of Philadelphia where she continues to pursue her careers in animal-assisted education and dog training. She can be reached on instagram at megboscov.
