in perpetuity

perpetuity comp

My vision remains unheard,
entangled in my mind–
the only opening
is through my eyes,
extending and gathering
itself in endless
constant revisions

Reflecting winds and seas,
skies and trees,
rocks and roots–
what surrounds has been
invited inside
and dwells without walls
between

perpetuity eye s

And yet I can’t turn
the inner landscape
into sounds that cohere
to understanding–
it remains unconverted
by categories
or translation

A part of being
that permeates
the center
but does not
present itself
within the constraints
of anything at all

For Sue Vincent’s photo prompt, above.  I painted the landscape and then tried two different overlays–one of black paper that was cut in a circle and torn, and one a collage of rock photos in my collage box.

I’m not sure which one I like best, but I like the contrast of light and dark.

  1. Nicely done. I especially like this, ‘My vision remains unheard,
entangled in my mind–
the only opening
is through my eyes,
extending and gathering
itself in endless
constant revisions.’
