fields of waves
coast & clouds
a turbulent sea
wind & abandoned steel
mountains fall through fingers
orange trees & sand
awaiting an answer
concrete examples solitude the treadmill the farmland reading logs chicken coops
embroidered dish towels
the word enigma complicates the conversation although no one is talking
resonance book store on green street art gallery at the top of the stairs
snow falling cherry blossoms & anemones
a branch in the middle of the stream sits on a rock thinking
i erase the board
“Alas, there are so many things between heaven and earth of which only the poets have dreamed.”
