The Change

Updated: Apr 25, 2022

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.
