Cinematic Past

a longues pédoncules

born 1845

when Walden

carved the name Thoreau lightly

in the bark of a sycamore tree

 

and Sturt searched the Simpson

for an inland sea. Unable to reach

the Rio de la plata, a chap

called Robert imagined moss pink

 

The past

is present

again

 

a roll call of names

like a cinema

of dreams

brings my rose

back to me
