FAR-OFF TABLEAUX

a poem by Adam Archer, Australia

Fog enshrouds the eastern slopes, daylight young,
The chance of dawning drizzle is imminent,
Soon all that is unseen shall to sight have sprung,
The most wonderful of vistas, transcendent:

The unspoiled balance of homeostasis;
All alpines and planes that grade, unobstructed,
All views stretch further, wane with hues of faintness,
How fragile and complex the biome has wended.

A romancer of views as far the eye espies;
A ponderer of stars too, I think on thee,
Of why the impearled skies came to be comprised,
To marvel and gaze at the concentric chase be:

Evolving beams make landfall, some dulled by time,
Their diorama plays out by tableau and mime.
