half seen in the shadows
a film of images
monlit velvet. blue deep
a pale stone in the dark
a glitter of water:
the days end
   voices far afield

light of sunrise
   the stillness
a rainbow awakens
   more pleasure
    down to sunset:
after the brocade of night
& the ornate
              shield
a sable ribbon in a chronicled
painting of Spring
                in fiesta

yelow turquoise vermillion
rising
    crossing
        then gathered
clinging       staggered
a continuing thread
together again
in marked sculpture
fragments moderated
around
    an arbour of stone

beauty just beginning
a process
     taking form
a mongraph dwelling
as it were
         in the air
moving towards certainty
an obscure need
flowering
as a neccessity elsewhere

out of the night langour
out of the darkness   no form
nothingness    no movement:
time drifts
   between pleasure & peace
    splendour&habit
dwelling in a natural manner
always
     precious

memory
   full of detail    a catalogue
a kindled
             measure of sensitive
conversations
a compromise of the constant
a disposal of reason
a deposit of the repetitive
a voyage to the distant past
still
   liquid customs written&
understood
matter still
              in place

through it all
the priviledged remain here
spinning
      empty pledges
in a procession
offering their measured
     magnificence
to implement particulars:
meeting together
without real participation
