When I speak of nature, I speak of the sky, because the sky
has become all of nature to me. But it is most particularly
the brooding, storm-ridden sky over the Sound of Sleat
in which I find the living image of past dreams,
dreams which had emerged from memory and the swirl of paint.
Here I can see the drama of nature charged and compressed.
Lands form, seas disappear, worlds fragment, colors merge
or give birth to burning shapes, mountain snows show emerald green.
Or, for a long moment, life stops still when the gales pause
and the sky clears after long days of careening sound and
horizontal rain or snow.
