Pictures and a Walt Whitman poem

Susan M - January 7, 2008

What is the grass?

Now it seems to me the beautiful uncut hair of graves.

Tenderly will I use you curling grass,

It may be you transpire from the breasts of young men,

It may be if I had known them I would have loved them

…All goes onward and outward, nothing collapses,

And to die is different from what any one supposed, and luckier.


  1. I swear this poem makes more sense with your pictures added……It just feels so much more coherent. Thanks

  2. In our house, the grass is dead lions…

    Per normal, Susan, your photos are lovely.

  5. This is a great poem! And the pictures are wonderful. Did you take them yourself? Thank you for taking the time to put this together and share.

    I also have something I would like to share with you. I’m writing to tell you about a little project I’m working on with Chris Heimerdinger. He’s the author of the “Tennis Shoes Among the Nephites” books. He also has a new movie out you may be interested in blogging about…

    After a solid run throughout the state of Utah, Chris Heimerdinger’s first feature film, Passage to Zarahemla, opens outside of Utah starting this Friday. He will be coming to an area near you very soon.

    Chris is available for interview and would love to discuss with you his incredible journey from best-selling novelist to award-winning filmmaker. Many people do not realize Chris was a filmmaker first and received the Sundance Film Institute’s Most Promising Filmmaker award, and others awards as well.

    Feel free to contact me at tams8275@yahoo.com to set up an interview with Chris. You can also contact his PR manager Bettyanne Bruin at bruinpr@yahoo.com.

    I appreciate your consideration of this e-mail and look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.
