pale pink light in cloud above still shadowed ridge

song sparrow calling tchep tchep in left foreground

that they were a sign of, insights on the nature of

what has been present, as we speak, sense of object

“each participle has meaning, another form of music

which comes from the way that one pronounces words”

pink white orange of sky above still shadowed ridge

unseen towhee calling teek teek in right foreground

here not previously been, because expressed in part

in variation, unobserved, three-dimensional objects

cloudless blue white sky above still shadowed ridge

silhouette of sparrow perched on post in foreground

comparison field suggests that, it is evident which

point there, points which are a rest, between which

“creations that live in a magnificent abstract real

world, inaccessible to words and yet totally there”

light blue whiteness of sky above still black ridge

shadowed finch slanting toward fence across from it

“line” in order to point, object which is something

Terry Riley noting Rainbow in Curved Air’s “14-beat

light grey rain cloud against still invisible ridge

shadowed sparrow landing on post in left foreground

something, becomes object again, before having been

man on death bed asking if his book could save some

pink edge of grey rain cloud against plane of ridge

shadowed white wave breaking to the left of channel

pink red orange lines of cloud above shadowed ridge

shadowed towhee slanting toward fence in foreground

no matter how many other, place in its present form

in foreground of another, himself seen, examples of
