Allegory... from a time before

imagine luminous black
wings stretching into golden
a silent fall into the arc of world
all seeing ravens
a bird of your choice
imagine you are the bird
swooping over a crest
of black and white hill
close enough to hear melodies
horses hooves
creaking armour
knights striving & heaving
crosses in all directions
daring sweep
diagonal rush to save ... or capture
uneasy alliances of church & state
dive into the mist, closer
closer still
near enough to taste
copper of blood and soldiers
murmuring a thousand sighs
sacrificed for a king
victory or gallantry
a queen's tranquil insolence
the hush of the castle at day's end
a tactical lullaby
this in two dimensions...
or one...

No; don't


  1. ... and trying another; from a piece I did a while back and refined a bit... for a playful, patient, gentle teacher who introduced me to this landscape

  2. "a bird of your choice
    imagine you are the bird
    swooping over a crest
    of black and white hill
    close enough to hear melodies"

    Evocative and thought provoking in its entirety.

  3. Imagine a life imaginings in 10 dimensions of willing capture by thoughts taken to ever increasing heights.

  4. I love the imagery of being a bird flying over history. The line 'a silent fall into the arc of world' is just fabulous, fabulous.

  5. those middle ages were a crap time :)
    a queen's tranquil insolence what a beautiful line

  6. Nice movements in there, felt them. Looking forward to follow you here

  7. a queen's tranquil insolence' and sacrifice for a king, I loved the way you wove layers, I was there and at the same time looking above.

    Happy day, Sarah)
