an isolated area of intricate design
keeping in their minds the lines of melody
spherical baskets slowly taking shape
from a yellow ochre background in swirls
but those things happened centuries later
almost in the way that I desired

the place I had last seen him
rectangular rocks leading out into
the choppy dark blue green sea
tangential places in our lives
intimate experience of painting the woods

some unknown mystery, some aura
it wasn't until that very moment
the significance of the date
Deep blue. Aquamarine. Gold and red.
A sea of gold haloes. treasure of the Templars
in candle light procession
