GOD IS IN THE DETAILS: STONE

A Reflective Journey through Lent

About us

LENTSTONE, LLC represents the photography and poetry of

Anjanette Marie Lemak.

 

"Ever since I was a child, I have loved to spend hours just walking along a beach looking at beautiful stones. I get lost in time there ever drawn to the next amazing creation by nature. Sometimes I search for a specific image, but most of the time I allow the stones to draw me along with them as they show me their unique stories... and every stone has its own story; where it is from, where it began, how it was shaped… a story of time, of weather, of minerals and creation. To hold them in the palm of my hand is pure comfort. The very weight is reassuring."

The Stones

LENTSTONES are found in abundance along the shores of Lake Champlain. They feature mineral deposits that have formed a natural cross-like shape through erosion and the effects of time and tide. This type of stone is known as Iberville shale, a name that comes from the Quebec town where it was first discovered. It is a thinly layered, sedimentary rock that was formed from marine silt deposited roughly 500-440 million years ago during the Ordovician period, when almost all of the earth north of the tropics was ocean. The silt deposited in these ocean waters became shale as it hardened and compacted over time. The veins in the stone are mineral calcite, which were formed by powerful compressing forces that caused the calcium carbonate in the water to fuse.

Poetry

The poetry is nature based and reflective. It forms a collection of simple thoughts and phrases meant to give the reader a moment of contemplation as they stop on each page and take in the visual work. Every Friday a repeating form of a "Question" poem or psalm will be used to further inspire deeper thought as the reader moves into the weekend through the season of Lent. The poetry is a combination of traditional rhyming forms and haiku.

 

 

Palm Sunday of the Lord's Passion

by Anjanette Lemak

 

in balance above this tumultuous rush

with arms extended and heart so free
as seasons change, first lark, then thrush

to move in grace in search of Thee

 

in mind's own eye, for sake of thought

why chance this path is here today

and with it you in turn were brought
in search of your own truth to say

 

that as spring's flower unfolds her leaf

and nature breathes her newborn air

with hope that time shall not be brief

for gathering together here
