Sight Unseen
By Bonnie DiSalvo

How long were you gone
From the corner of my eye?
And then came back
A stranger.
Full of wrath
And evil words
Of doom and retribution.
Where did you go
In that blink of an eye?
To become a lost lover
Tearing shreds
In my heart
And blurring my vision.

Paralyzed
By Alexa DiSalvo

Silver birch sleigh slid to a halt
Slick tusk runners sink in the snow
That is only time elapsed
Like dust on a useless mirror
Accumulating over this frozen river

I Am Lyons Colorado

The Lyons Recorder
Last week started a new feature in the Lyons Recorder called iamlyonscolorado. It will be comprised of photos (and a few words) of people that Lyons resident Kenneth Wajda has captured during his daily travels around town. Wajda is an independent filmmaker who has made several short films in and around Lyons. Prior to moving to Colorado in 2001 he worked as a staff photographer for a daily newspaper, The Trenton Times, in New Jersey for thirteen years.  Since then, in addition to making films, he has worked as a freelance photographer and still shoots editorial assignments, commercial jobs, portraiture, (family, engagement, senior, etc.) and teaches nature and street photography. 
Wajda explains how the idea of iamlyonscolorado came about, “I enjoy shooting street photography, which I call “life” photography, because it is both great exercise and it’s like treasure hunting.  It is quite fascinating how many moments cross your

As The Crow Flies

It’s a long way from Lyons to anywhere, “as the crow flies.” Residents of Lyons have known that for some time; many of them live here for just that reason. But now it’s official. Local artist Jake Pinello (he of the murals on the sides of the St. Vrain Market and car wash buildings) has just completed the latest addition to the burgeoning sculpture inventory lining the streets, paths, and parks of Lyons.

Pinello’s sculpture, “As the Crow Flies,” consists of four fifteen-foot wooden poles and a large rosecompass on the corner
