Trees crowned yellow and red
The air bright with damp leaves
A dry pond, with water all around
in gutters sunken in the wall
Inside a grid of light radiates,
stirring veins in banks
seeping through lead-less cracks
to be absorbed by velvet arches
A liquid creature of mortar and stone
Written during a wUrck excursion to Stockholm, fall 2014.
