Known for excellence in thought, word and deed,
An old friend,
A guy who loves to laugh,
Chase words, numbers and women.
Who hones in on the details
of a place
but hides the pain
in prairie settings
fish, trout, streams, solitude
behind a curtain of sonorous refrains
that he speaks aloud
into the air, the audience
on the winds
If there is heaven
Let it be here.
For Ted 4/26/2020 Dedicated to Ted Dyck
- “The term Camera obscura is taken from the Latin and means “dark room”. Invented in the sixteenth century, the camera obscura is made out of an arrangement of lenses and mirrors in a box that is darkened, The machine permits accuracy in a drawing, often of topographical detail. When looking through the lens of a camera obscura, The view presented is actually reflected through the mirrors onto the paper or cloth and allows the artist to draw by tracing the outline.”
Ted is a poet and teacher of poetry, who has kindly published some of my poems in Canada in Transitions Magazine. Ted Dyck is the editor of this regional magazine.
