Marcia Arrieta


a poem from/for sculptures—chillida-leku


searching the light
connection
trail V

silent music
a forest of trees
a farmhouse
stone & wave

music of the spheres
music of the constellations
listen to the sculptures:

synthesis
construction
variation
improvisation



(untitled)


tracks of the moon—
beyond domesticity


the sun moves toward the tangent of the angle
the height of the pine
what hours shall we include?

seas & continents
meridians & parallels—
the shepherd's dial or
an old pocket watch


islands inside out


individual elaborates unrealized

the idea beyond nothingness

conscious
                  the rock.     the tree.

source of
                  identity

ink. paint.

first line.   last line.   creates a game board

geography of the minds

                  without map


contrary to the mundane


written moments escape con-
undrums wound clocks tight
briefcase tie interior of look
a pencil undisclosed flowers
time water minutes deep unravel


desert wanderings

might understand. caught. again.


on the edge of abandon the words

are rearranged sparrows & parrots


remember rapturous

remember fulcrum




estranged concepts

scramble the lines // "the habit of freedom"


birds & muses



puzzle [the]

structure. surface. transparent. unknown.
pieces of blue glass in the everglades.
ten thousand islands. look for the birds
hidden in trees. the light/the shadows.
fields of sunflowers. fields of murmur.
the wind is a cloudbank. walk in layered.
walk in sculpted. reflective stones.


itineraries/to cross the water

opposite & preceding.   a shooting star or a komodo dragon.
the different stages of the moon's evolution.   a quilt with silk embroidery.
bears.   tigers.   a place for sculpture.   secrets.   wisdom.   a farmhouse.
rare books.   native philosophy.   romance languages.   a thousand miles.
a thousand voices.   queries.   scholars.   black holes.   meteors.
a goldfish.   or maybe a parrot.   the space before fly away.
