Face to Face – Emerging as Itself

 

Rise after rise bow the phantoms behind me,
Afar down I see the huge first Nothing, I know I was even there,
I waited unseen and always, and slept through the lethargic mist,
And took my time, and took no hurt from the fetid carbon.

(moving top right towards bottom left)

 

experimental free writing, no punctuation, first draft

 

face to face across the field

and the mind within

between horizons perceived in all directions

in particular

from sky to earth

transcendental

the pathway is

the seeing

letters lend themselves to lines

a line to word

toward

continuous

the line wonders

wanders feeling its way

is this feeling

or the random motion

of molecules

reflected

in the trail left behind

moving on

touching the history of

the entire world

revisiting it to retell it

see

how

until

the message is almost detectable

almost written

but taciturn

still

this is today

the day

eons ago

when

the word and the picture

became one

and the same

this first

portrayal

out of  the huge

first nothing

wandering with

this line of mine

I

see

the trail

Ieft behind

leading us back

to our only

possible

destination

 

Note to self:

Collate free writing/verse so far and with visual annotations following the painting sequence.
