Fire and Ice Photography: Michigan

The inspiration for this poem came while showing my brother-in-law what I believed to be one of the highest points in Emmet County.   We drove out into the middle of this beautiful alfalfa field.  In full view was a stunning panorama of the Mackinaw Bridge and Straits of Mackinaw.  It was a beautiful July day and happened to be the birthday of my oldest son John, who had drowned in Little Traverse Bay the past October.  While taking in the intensity of the moment, a single line popped into my head, "Land of the eagle's heart."   The rest of the poem soon followed.  I failed to get a photograph that day, but went back several times to get the shot.  The light was never right.  Finally, while flying with a friend over the Mackinaw Bridge, I got the shot that would fit the poem. Enjoy!
