Marcia Arrieta


the poetry of navigation


the mind hammered

the mind made of stars

(peasants & wanderers & hermits)

we cover ourselves with forest

the sacred a field




remake


the house the circle the hours
into a country of old books


sometimes the pieces need to be
gathered, rearranged in the silence




taping the book together


past present thought memory now
branches wind water light
precisely listening     the owl    the bear




she contemplates The Dictionary of Modern Painting


*

distracted wisdom truth
molecules of paint
or a winter storm

particles of tradition timeless


*

…image and symbol, direct perception and ideal interpretation


*

within the margins
fragments of constraints
pencil currents

transitional minnows


*

Nevertheless, there is a strange contradiction…


*

the words—
leaves, flowers
adapt to the sun or moon




variation


pain

beauty

order

waves

in wings


concrete

concepts

calculations


the paths

the sanctuary

Tower by the Sea
                Klee




prelude


*

(hand-painted)

the orange nasturtium & the narwhal


prelude


*

fugue of the elements

(hand-painted)
