on time

if you get up early
during these short days
get out, walk towards the east
stand still, watch the bright light grow
from deep blue, so blue its almost black
to steel grey
watch the horizon burn
turn, look up at the highest point
study the golden light edging down
the church steeple
the conifer
the pylon
city hall's clock tower
you'll feel the Earth spinning
taking you into a new day

On Water xvii

lunatic repetition

tide in, tide out, back and forth

set your clock by it

n.b. Imagine if we had time pieces attuned to the tides, not set from Greenwich Meridian; would we be more sensitive to our planet’s music?

On Earth

Night’s shadow climbs hill

fills in hollows, outlines trees.

Sun ignites heaven.
