Sounds of Spaces and Places Week ending 26th February 2012 CE

I

hint of filigree,

a thread of presence folds

into darkness.

Like draped silk,

a whisper of air

folds into silence.

there…/…not there.

II

Sounds like

Ed Blackwell, and Max Roach

are gi’en it laldy in the park’s municipal bin.

Ane of thae big green wheely numbers

pitchin’ and pulsatin’

wi polyrhythmic paradiddles.

Then oot! vertical!

two squirrel’s explode

through the brushes,

an aff wi the spoils.

III

A night sky of

deep darkness

soaking in the light

as stars sigh.

A crescent of moon

resists and smiles

as Venus breathes.

IV

Magical, Moondog moonbeams of metre. Celestial songs and canons.

(After the Art Ensemble of Fife, Duglas T Stewart and Davie Scott’s wonderful Moondog evening at The Fife Jazz Festival).
