Two finches tangle, bound together by a filament of air, tying knots in the wind.
New growth clatters under my glove, springs. Silver branches shimmer before a white sun.
Weight of a thought on my tongue.
On a path to the forest, wood chips rattle. Here, on the outside, brittle.
This part of the wood where the dead trees are. Bracken rises. Listen. The old ones creak. The water seeps. Wetland covers the forest floor, blackish. Rises. Listen.
Ebb and flow of rhythm. The colour of the music.
Motion in space with the music. Not dancing; crouching. How my arms wield paint, syringe.
