Picture Poem 6/7/2007 - Poem by Peter S. Quinn

polishing the patience mirror

comprehension burned
to soft casting object

night bright telescope tube
carefully worked around
Marveled surface

(Inspiration - source:
“Only some faithless dust remains,
and a few intestate relics.
Where was I? ” – 3 lines from, “A Draft of Shadows” by Octavio Paz)
