Quicksilver and Effervescence


powdered charcoal pour texture, pigment powder, acrylic on w/c paper, 10 X 11″

there’s a loud flapping of wings from every direction

and I stand wondering if this sound,

this extraordinary quivering of air and shape and color

had been there all along

while I was lost in useless thought

patterns emerge and dissolve

awareness opens and closes off

colorful orbs merge and dissolve

I want to name them all, set them free for all time

but they are quicksilver and effervescence.
