Elizabeth Beaton-II

Four Seasons Scroll



Mist rolling into mountains

Mountains into fields

Fields into the half-smudged tops

Of trees crooked by wind.


Light and shadow, ghosts of lines:

A dance. The paint flees.

I search for you in the forms

Of sleeping stone, and find you

In the empty space at the feet

Of two peaks.


Clouds part, and hillsides

Mirror infinity

With a shower of sun.
