steaming pond and other things

 tooley pond
 as the weather turned
an uneasy dance surfaced
between sky and depth
cold was fighting the warming waters
over the weekend 
 hortus siccus

 pages of this northern garden
 rinsing away plant matter
paper and cloth
 a pattern
a pleat
 some cloths
some text
some thoughts

Lovely printing images... and isn't this the strangest spring? Over the weekend I had the wood stove lit and by Friday its going to be hot. Whacky!

aimee said...

you are working through it! to lasting health and wonderful new text thought dye paper combos. maybe that's a gift from the deep long illness.

love the pleat - it's those accidental oddities that make things interesting. In life as well as textiles.

mists are rising here too - but thats because the mornings are getting colder and colder.... winter is definitely on the way....

V- amazing what dye those plants hold and give. B

I love those mists - they always intrigue me no matter where. And lovely to make a book of your garden!

valerie, thanks, and it is very strange
aimee, now that is a positive thought i'd like to hold
jean, yes, there are several when you make a LOT of something, and now in my old age i welcome this!
ronnie, i know were at opposites because i've experienced it!, but it still amazed me!
barry, yes, each pot is a miracle
fiona, yes, or someone else's garden, too!

i think
at some point
i will have to go live by a lake
to have mists rising
and a view over water...

Velma Bolyard said...

neki-love "cosmic angst" though when i reread it i read "comic angst" which is funny and tragic.
