Before Words–Jade Barrett

Find your curve
For things to be new
Be with
Your own flair
Find a way to care
To caress
To nestle up against
The thing that most
Interests your quest
To express
Personal compassion
Through this inspection
Without correction
A sudden fruition
Emerges as
The only conclusion

Three generations of Jade Barrett’s family call Oregon home. Growing up in Eugene, he gathered memories of the Dunes, Sea Lion Caves, Lincoln City, the Seaside Turnaround, and the Peter Iredale. Now living in the High Desert, he and his family often return to the ocean. Photo by Jade Barrett: Bhutan
