Dream

In a pocket of earth
I buried all the accents
of my mother tongue

there they lie
like needles of pine
assembled by ants

one day the stumbling cry
of another wanderer
may set them alight

then warm and comforted
he will hear all night
the truth as lullaby

The Ideal Mathematician, Berriedale, Orkney, January, 1984.  Platinum-palladium print on 100% cellulose paper (Van Gelder Simili Japon) from 18x24cm original negative.

While I’m thinking, and looking back (see previous post) on old work, about politics, myopia and the environment, this image comes to mind. It was made while reading Daniel Dennett’s and Douglas Hofstadter’s Minds I, of a snow-covered farm field outside my house in Orkney.
