Earth As Art


Earth As Art

In aircraft over Eastern Oregon, see winter's
landscape white and blue. White discs equal
crop fields: wheat? Lake-blue equals not
lake but mountains' shadows: shockingly
beautiful and surreal. Brownish blue is lake.

All color down there just is: is simply it.
Allow color to be abstract if you will.

White ends abruptly as a suede plain
opens up to view.  Plain cannot desire
view, unlike artists and their art. This
sculpted painting below comes from
genius of, genesis of, Earth. Down there,
as up here where jet-trails briefly mark
the sky, humans have etched geometric
shapes and scrawled highways. That's
about all.  Otherwise, Earth is left
alone to the studio of itself.
