February 2015

Trees crowned yellow and red

The air bright with damp leaves

A dry pond, with water all around

in gutters sunken in the wall


Inside a grid of light radiates,

stirring veins in banks

seeping through lead-less cracks

to be absorbed by velvet arches


A liquid creature of mortar and stone


Written during a wUrck excursion to Stockholm, fall 2014.
