A view from a train. A chapped, sun-dried terrain, yet amidst the rock bed of some non-existent river, the promising black-blue depths of water  …

(As a rule, I never use ellipses. However my poetry here, in case you didn’t notice, has surprised me so much, I must make an exception.)



This photo looks disturbing to me, perhaps because there are so many unanswered, incomplete problemos in it, such as the headless tree on the left, what looks like a tree that has buried its head or tail(?) in the sand, a tree bending over to peer into the water, and — well, that’s about it.
