YES TOMORROW: poem for Kate Newby

Swimmers, sand, and light at Freyberg Beach Wellington, morning, 13 May

I visited the Adam Art Gallery and came away feeling clean and fresh and light and a wee bit clever. The title of Kate Newby’s exhibition is YES TOMORROW. Itself a poem. Just had to mark the moment with a few words of thanks. But not too many. Don’t clutter up my mind…

Light as a note from a glass wind chime
Airy as a bubble of absent glass
Blue like a concrete sea

      Thanks Priscilla. They have to be simple, like the simple/not-simple work of the artist.

    2. Rachel McAlpine says:

      Just a passing shadow of her work

  4. Very neat

  5. Vivid words, like a haiku – just written some if you’ll excuse the shameless plug –

      I did enjoy them Dave especially the last one. I’ve deleted the link from your comment because that’s my policy (otherwise the spam floods in). But don’t worry, readers can find your haiku from your comment.

      1. Yes, that makes sense, thanks.
