@ In The Nature Of Things - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan

@ In the nature of things

In the nature of things:
Art about mobility, lightness and freedom.
Simple creative acts of walking and marking
about place, locality, time, distance and measurement.
Works using raw materials and my human scale
in the reality of landscapes.

The music of stones, paths of shared footmarks,
sleeping by the river's roar.

-From Richard Long's Website
