“Labyrinth” at Tim Melville Art Gallery, 16 July – 17 Aug 2019

a piece of wood crossing colour,
blue crossing the other yellow.
a yellow dies when over dark
at wide angle with bloody reds.
wood with black; smeared pigment
passing over the blue with white.
the red almost touching the wall,
the black absorbing its pigment.
But it’s not what I wanted to see …
should be darker yellow on red
as when crossing over the river.
dark thoughts need black intensity!
crossing over the high mountain;
crossing the blue ‐ reaching further –
lighter if covered with silver;
silver and red form white shadows,
intersections or points of view
crossing the street or the river …
of my thoughts and a length of wood.
