Quadrille – The sun itself


Sure it’s meant
to be abstracted at some level.
you’re involved — the
whole shebang. If I wrote
‘beach’ or ‘sun’ for inst.
tho you’ve walked
some similar season,
it is never quite…

Yet somehow this                    (winter bright shore gulls wind wheeling)

Image: Acrobats, Sydney, 1930s / Sam Hood, c/- State Library of NSW. A quadrille (a 44 word poem) written for Dverse, the poet’s pub – where Grace is hosting the bar’s 8th anniversary.

And for no particular reason, here’s Sarah Davachi with Pale Bloom (great music to write to)

  1. Ditto, Peter, good to be reading your work, and for myself, I think better intimations of mortality than unsubtle threats from the collectors of life’s debt. Funny thing– I was just listening to “Ain’t no sunshine (when she’s gone)” and somehow it keyed in with this fascinating piece; other interpretations possible. As always.
