Landscape

Landscape

Utterance
within the parameters set
by form

expressionless
save motion

the lone branch
brought to the fore
and in the distance

stock ponds collecting rain

the word is
forget, as in the imperative
as in function, as in

you must have

  1. I love the first picture. It is just beautiful. To me it surpasses any flowery scenes. I have looked up close. The reflection of the bale in the water next to the blue of the sky… I wonder who lives underneath. There is a little piece of red in the water by the bank. I don’t know what it is but it fits. The cattle gently feeding in the background with the fence leaning maybe tilted by a persistent wind. The bird’s nest now exposed in the treetop. The left over fall colors blended and smudged in the distance. I really like it.

  2. The picture and the poem both, I find to be wonderful. Coming from the prairies, the picture sort of draws forth feelings of warmth and comfort that are simply reinforced by the words that encompass the picture.
