Spring - Four Thousand Gates
Spring - Four Thousand Gates
Oil on Board
37" x 44"

The first leaves fold over
hide the next leaf, the next,
the next
hide the flower, still hiding
the fruit, inside a seed
yet to come into being,
still hiding.

There are a thousand fences
A thousand walls, a maze.
Four thousand entry points, then,
No barriers at all.
