This week our tutor brought in an old green glass fishing float similar to the first of these pictures. Our task was to take it as our inspiration and to write without describing the object.
Round and round in a circle
in a wheel within a wheel
never-ending nor beginning
ever spinning, ever rolling
running ragged, twirling twister
in the whistling whirlpool
the mists of time.
the folding spaces of Mobius ribbons
red giants and white dwarves
explosive Big Bang.
With thanks to the lyrics of The Windmills of Your Mind
