wow, LT, now that is an interesting thought (that this might be the first tree)! I really thought it was light, tho perhaps NOT the light of the moon (perhaps the moon and sun are in the sky together, the sun not shown except by these 'thick' rays, perhaps it is the first day in the creation of the world, everything not in its place yet). Note, above the moon and to the left a little, what looks like a stairway, climbing upwards.

The stairway to the Sun?

Overall, to me, a fascinating but very.....mechanical looking piece. I expect someone to come wind it up at any moment, at which point "Rhapsody in Blue " will play and the moon will jerkily move about the 'sky', the pines bending together in a cog-driven wind.

did you notice how reminiscent of this piece TORN's "obey" tee is?


I tried to be as stark and linear as i could in the poem, but i really am a Samwise sort of girl. I read a bit of Ferlingetti and Ginsberg (can you WAIT to see that movie? I can't!!!!!!) to psych myself up, but i can't really write in that style. In any case, i am so very glad you enjoyed the post. I really am fascinated by this piece and wish i could write more to it, but the 'how' part has thus far escaped me.

well, ta for now!
