About Me

My photo
Adalbert is a forum for me, to post ephemera, photography, poetry, occasional travel notes, and various spontaneous motions. Cover photo: Parsonage where my great-grandfather spent his early years. Taken near Liegnitz, Silesia, ca. 1870.

Adumbration

 
 
Adumbration
 
 
Bird walking on wings in foam, in the tidal and receding cave. The omens, gusts of moving sand.
 
Fallen brook, ribboned and covered with black tadpoles.  Green-grey, drained leaves, burrs, lava roads.  Away the farm row of beeches, portend horizon winds sounding.  In the mowed fields of alfalfa, two shades walk above with heads edged with gold.
 
One robe grows large in the void grounded by the black-topped building.
