En Plein Air
I scroll thru
en plein air
I wanna be
of Ribbon Fall
I travel online

In this high rope of water
twisting from times long gone
down the famous falls
I have bound my vows
for ages still to come
Zōki, ‘Ionushi’s Pilgrimage to Kumano’ tr. Meredith McKinney, in Travels with a Writing Brush.
One of the most bewitching books I’ve read this year.
No puppy or dog will ever be capable of this, and surely no parrot. No one can ask another a rhetorical question. We can only read stray rocks and first we must learn their names.
I’ve been enjoying this album whose song titles form a poem.
I have an extract from a new long poem, ‘Vermilion Cliffs’, in Volume 7.1 of Reliquiae, available here. I’m particularly delighted to be included in this journal as it’s one of my favourites.
