light in window opposite unmade yellow and blue bed

shadowed bamboo leaves moving next to redwood fence

think of starlit night approximate the same subject

today even this much house may even be easy to keep

four days before mother’s birthday someone arriving

home walking up path with cat her face in her hands

blinding white circle of sun in clouds beside ridge

line of white wave breaking on sand next to channel

light coming into lines of clouds above black ridge

bird flapping to the right from feeder toward fence

form of attention most in those capable of grasping

lines of sight crossing space depths a linear event

pattern of a song’s music completed every two lines

unit of line overlapped by a unit of musical phrase

yellow red orange of clouds above shoulder of ridge

white line of wave breaking on sand next to channel

blue white edge of sky next to still shadowed ridge

motionless green bamboo leaves beside redwood fence

velocity of light relative to what may be motion of

three dimensional space reformed between disappears

do not think I’m not here spare time thinking about

two detachable identities one in words one in music

blinding white circle of sun coming up beside ridge

line of light reflected in still motionless channel

pale blue whiteness of sky beside still black ridge

sound of song sparrow calling from right foreground

here beginning first itself what has come behind it

ends with image of hands grass in touch with nature

shape of words in song as rhythm and sound patterns

coupled with melodic and rhythmic patterns of notes

first edge of sun coming up above shoulder of ridge

swell lines moving across nearly motionless channel

cloudless blue white sky next to sunlit green ridge

white-crowned sparrow landing on tip of rose branch

see to begin would be taken up somewhere to move it

not the object first to be sure the question of say

thinking on the one hand related to asking question

name for the line horizon in which such become both

blinding yellow whiteness of sun rising above ridge

white line of wave breaking across mouth of channel

cloudless blue of sky beside tree-lined green ridge

motion of shadowed green bamboo leaves across fence

what you think of now beginning to be a description

dwelling place here a home house to take shelter in

even if now after naming different time in anything

now that it will be taken as some objective present

white circle of sun in bright blue sky beside ridge

white line of light reflected in motionless channel

grey line of light in blackness of sky beside ridge

sound of wind moving in bamboo branches above fence

way to see still made also on the page saw painting

intersect set of points dispersed indoor space lane

something comes out of perception of things happens

relations between things pulling together and apart

blackness of sky next to still black plane of ridge

orange line of light on horizon to the left of point

light coming into blue blackness of sky above ridge

planet below cloud by shadowed branch next to fence

measured distance between two points of light place

action of moving point another in relation to space

speaking about how vowel tones lead the rhythm what

was actually happening there on the stage of a page

grey blue sky between lines of clouds next to ridge

shadowed white lines of waves breaking into channel

diagonal white cloud in blue white sky beside ridge

silhouette of crow on black pine branch above fence

inward beginning even there can still remain veiled

later exterior what would call the passage in lines

knowing how to put a preposition at end of the line

whether or not to register line breaks reading them

blinding white circle of sun comes up next to ridge

shadowed line of swell approaching mouth of channel

diagonal line of cloud in pale blue sky above ridge

edge of sun in shadowed bamboo leaves next to fence

each of two pieces said instants which is continual

thought then adding sometimes in those days subject

not to say something springs from question it asked

decides in other words first thinking belongs to it

whiteness of sun in cloud next to shoulder of ridge

line of white light reflected in motionless channel

cloudless blue edge of sky beside still black ridge

upturned curve of waning moon next to bamboo branch

whitish light where yellows and orange told whether

only these buildings limit at home on the way there

not to say something springs from question it asked

decides in other words firth thinking belongs to it

orange of sky next to still black shoulder of ridge

shadowed swell lines moving toward mouth of channel

lines of grey clouds in blue black sky next to ridge

white edge of waning moon in shadowed green branches

continuing to divide attention returned home to see

direction for door somewhere converges with another

rose an experience changes in that sense looking at

how sounds of words in line register things outside

orange of sky beside clouds above shoulder of ridge

white curve of moon next to NO PARKING ANYTIME sign

blue white sky beside tree-lined green top of ridge

white-crowned sparrow on feeder below redwood fence

think space time physical from one point to another

where relation to velocity along in four dimensions

pink red edge of blue blackness of cloud in picture

somehow looking like painting stopped motion effect

blinding whiteness of sun next to shoulder of ridge

shadowed swell lines moving toward mouth of channel

white clouds in light blue sky next to sunlit ridge

red finches perched on feeder next to redwood fence

see beginning at first to show itself there appears

foreground much as later negative part of landscape

something between one and another visible confusion

present depicted as what is being in relation to it

white circle of sun rising into clouds beside ridge

swell lines approaching motionless mouth of channel

Saturday, February 15, 2020


sunlit white clouds next to shadowed green of ridge

motion of sparrow flapping from feeder toward fence

instant at which one is transferred to another time

letter to those days how difficult it was sometimes

slightly east of you under cloudless pale blue late

afternoon skies in perfect storm of missed messages

blinding white circle of sun next to shadowed ridge

white line of light reflected in motionless channel

light coming into blue blackness of fog above ridge

shadowed towhee flapping from edge of redwood fence

take blue or green way of conventional night scenes

idea building in which everything that is in place

looking down at diagonal black line of the sandspit

color gone out of the world after the sun goes down

grey whiteness of fog above black shoulder of ridge

swell line approaching otherwise motionless channel
