words and image from 12th Jan 2005

yesterday a dark day, today a clearer light
sowed lettuce on the kitchen window sill

the folly of wealth
the slavery of luxury

my dismay is connected to this folly
joy is the rejection of folly

to come from under it’s yoke
Elisha’s fire of yoke wood before release

Servitude to the interior is deep
Awareness is the danger of freedom

(five years on and I find it hard to penetrate my thinking from this January day, but I do remember painting it and can well understand how I felt.)
