The Change

Updated: Apr 25

Stare into your layers

and peel away mine

We penetrate the canopy

unfolding inflorescence


Torn leaves of a life

expand into constellation

The pattern of a person

Molecular identity


Scattered fragments

cluster into conurbation

projecting, unveiling

striated narrows


Stare into streets

Wander aimless

your canals pour into mine

Our lives compound


My eye meanders

through evolving depths

gravitates towards centre

A door, a chamber, a treasure


My centre reaches out to hold

I am entangled!

Quantum phenomenon

across space and time


Inspired by Ralph Rumney's painting 'The Change' in The Tate Britain, Weston Gallery 1950.
