Scorpion Garden #2




T.S. Eliot: The world revolves like ancient women gathering fuel in vacant lots.


PHOTOGRAPHER'S JOURNAL:  

What Need

to find the nexus 
between this sprite 
and the weight of coal 
that has been borne here 
like 
a flowing river 
from the heart of mother earth 
to fires 
remaking 
everything

OMG. I loved #1 but this one even more. It's the fella with the sunglasses, I think. :) But T.S. Eliot's quote is the kicker!

I didn't know you were partial to T.S. Eliot. U used to especially love reading Preludes with kids, but after I stopped teaching in Boston, the poem didn't resonate as well with rural kids. What a beautiful song it is!
