Roger Ackling (1947 - 2014)

With Roger in Japan 2005

if the light of the sun
is focused through a lens
it will burn
giving off smoke
leaving a dark
mark of intention
sunlight on wood

yellow & blue

at its upper limit
the mountain pansy
viola lutea
rooted in uncertainty
is blue and yellow

to remember it
is to visit it
again in thought
to lean
closer in

glamour stands scrutiny
the world is sonorous
spacious and chromatic
fragrant, formidable
responding to the touch
