Windows to Pastoral

1.
monitor this still
idyll composed of
clouds clustered as
a single point of
white waiting always

to spread through
the rigours of air a
scale defined by
paling mountains

(blue) brushed with
edelweiss & graupel
only observable if

the scale in its
infinite scalability
may be
compressed or
expanded to
reveal carved textures
repeating.

spread clouds
still (as expansions &
elongations of
a single white point
maintained
as chart)
come with shadows
on vertices
whispering

across the fields. it is
in illusion & so
invisible via inevitability
(invisible except in
providing hills with
the sensation of
sculpture)

hills composed in precise ratio of hues &
given depth by dragged cloud shadow.

that the hilltop
crest is struck clear in
definition from
receding mountains prior is
inevitable. the beauty

is an absence of
material hands:
in the field: parallels
(as corrupt rendering
(as corruption maintains
the shadow of some initial desire))
bound by a thin wicker fence &
defining the field of parallels
from its hosting hill.

thin fence whose posts
point past chance to

arrange themselves
quietly in the ground to
maintain a vantage over the
unseen soil & mark it
in inherent units. distance &
scale &

in irony it is its ossified state
that gives way to
potential. settled

the eye wanders
picking up
an illusion

2.
of shadow clouds whispering
across very green hills.
the unseen motion &
completed saturation (or
perhaps the enticing of static

as charges begin to
wind together
pre cascade)
perhaps occurred in
the form of a deluge

& in the undulation of
liquid or lightning lashing
against the unyielding &
transparent properties of
this guided image

3.
the negative space of
rolling motion opens
to be filled by observant
as red & noise.

fill the field with
signs of

Polyphemus with pine in hand
as shepherd on the plain

&

Odysseus as Outis
bound to herd belly with transparent intentions

4.
&

utopia as utopia as
pastoral as pastoral as
(un)space perfect for
reformation

&

any sense of scale
piercing the
observant eye
as fallible
