I am of this place
Moonrose Doherty

Funny thing about salal berries. Each one is different. Their ripening completely independent.

Maybe that’s why I like them so much.

The surprise



an opening to possibility stained fingers

I am estuarine water

Shore pine

Brackish water


I am sword ferns and red alder

I am cold fog and crabs burying themselves in the surf Melting sun and madrone blossoms

I am the scent of baking fir needles

I am open to possibility
