THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “What Is Water?” by Danielle Legros Georges: water, cloud, river, tell, casts, kite, descending, passports, heat, cluster, grapes, brown
Cluster of clouds as river flows
Shades of brown in the background of canvas
In the sky some kites rising and some descending
Could you tell like it was in prose?
Prose so beautiful like a song
Grapes so juicy, like to eat them right there
As the water spills, please do not be worried
I’m sure this work strung like gong
Gong striking from one end to next
Casting some spell where one loses mind
In the heat of the sun, perhaps too long out there
Would do anything being hexed
Hexed fine with some breath of luster
Passports all sorts of colour and of tribe
Dabbing of colour here and there make this all work
Clouds move five or six in cluster*
