Abstracts

Abstracted

Image by June Perkins

Version 1

Water, sand, textures, light and patterns
Playing with the manual focus settings on my camera
Thinking about oneness with ocean, river, creek
Triangles and circles in the light
Light through branches
Early morning webs transfigured by sunrise
Light dancing colours on the ocean
This is my journey into abstraction.

Version 2

Triangles and circles
in the light
Reflected fragments in
hexagons of glass
Patterns of
turtle and crocodile

These once were
light through branches
Early morning webs transfigured by
sunrise
Light dancing colours on the ocean
and the river

Rainforest stain glass
cathedral singing green
A city skyline
dancing into rainbow columns
praising the moon

Abstractions telling me
there’s so much universe
and so little time

(c) June Perkins

Sometimes photographs inspire words. This is just a beginning – will work with this idea a little more.

  1. The geometric concepts you’ve interwoven and your dexterous phrasing elevate this poem to a fantastic level. Quite looking forward to reading more from you.

    1. Thanks – doing some experiments to weave the photography and poetic practice into something a little different from what I’ve done in the past. Thanks for your response, much appreciated.
