Liberal Art Perspectives

A really Big Idea -
The Silk Road remains just that:
Moths to the flame.

eastwards moving, turning round
 eastwards moving

Tipping Point - red tapechatter, antiphony, barely discernedwhat is success

fashion house waifs

Footsteps retraced to the source.
Breaking down and crying for all we are worth.
Unheard in the great migration.
A billion life stories in motion.
Road traffic reports. Conversations snatched
by accident.
Stranger across a
crowded room.

                          We are other
alone at sea Liberal Arts flourish, pulsing through the blood vessels of culture. Fighting white cells and antibodies of the Body Corporate. Plasma virus spreads.
If it moves cell it.

Wonderous, teeming life on earth evolved.
Our hands reveal the past.

Dammed, diverted, evaporated.
Carrying Human Resources' waste products
in its diminished wake.
We may never know the true potential
of the river Tagus flowing into the Atlantic past the Lisbon estuary fortress.
The mongoose moves, the spoonbill feeds.

Instability, distress, despair and fear are welcomed in some quarters as the conditions have the potential ability to promote material  interests and assumptions.

Swooping low, lakes and rivers,
to farmhouse eaves, gathering swallows nest.
Festival dreams in

stumbling across fields
and shaded trees,
Crucked roof tithe barn
Drums improvise,

Tracing Roots.
Dormant, stir, grow.
Rolled and trimmed.
Rounded up, shriveled.
Scorched, parched, desiccated.
Waterlogged, jaundiced.
Pulled up, wayside strimmed.
Provides beer, bread and pies.
Paths trodden. Men and flies.
Oats served and sown.
Foraged, plaited, stooped. Thrashed.
Stored, bailed, boiled and scythed.
Regimented heads swaying.
From the air spraying.
Transported, wrapped. Incarcerated.
To the landscape moulded.
Terrace flooded, drained and dried.
Fields of amber grain divide.
Creased linen, ironed, starched.
Mats, seats, hats, baskets, blinds.
Garden swathes, blades cut.
Clods, earth mounds, flowers.
Hay, straw, dew and floods.
Extremes respond in kind.
Always greener.
On the other side.

Beware of those offeringsolutions, into which you may be dissolved.

Sustainable challenge.

May. Out in the cold. 

It seems as if the only way to have an opinion that is noticed is to pollute in a really big way.
That's why it's really important not to be noticed.

Sequestrated weapons returned to earth.
Metals, organic matter, fuel restored.
Distilled imagination released.
Tar, coal and oil to shells recycled,
to autumn composts reversed.
Circuits, grid patterns in mycelium clusters decline.
Plastic organics remain imbedded, volatile.
Screen mists in waterfall cascades eroding.
Wings in migration beating as one.
Whales and dolphin pods answer the call.
Coral colony fronds respond in kind.
Slates and chalks recorded.
