first grey light in sky above still dark

building, vertical edge of wall in upper

left foreground, sound of cars in street

composition, sky at the top

took the place of eye

itself consequence, of such

referring to a hidden

green glass wall against bright blue sky,

sunlit silver of building across from it

  1. Stephen,

    It is a wonderful tribute to the persistence of your method that the datum surrenders to it without argument even as the landscape shifts. Bravo.

    But poetry remains glad you have come home to the original ground of the composition, that base upon which all variation is founded and to which, as if inevitably (can human things ever really be inevitable?), things must and do return... in order to go on.
