Across Waves, Across Surface Tension (Poem and Painting)

( Shelburne Bay, August - Painting by Kevin Macneil Brown,
acrylic on canvas, 2009)


Ancient strength
and curve of flow of
waters between

Lone Rock Point’s
time-stilled geology

open arms of
Appletree Bay.

South, across waves,
across surface tension

(the massive Rock Dunder)

changing, becomes,

in changing light
and beyond long journey,

a gray, weathered sail
or resting eagle.

- Kevin Macneil Brown
