Catabolic Grace

Harvest by Oliver Freeman

this poem was inspired by the powerful images

of nature and decay; of beauty and desolation

in Oliver Freeman’s art

 

 

Catabolic Grace

*

land undulating

in to rolling furrows ploughed

defiant decay

waste of catabolic grace

dross in to gold in to dross

*

at the seasons edge

green waves, shining muddy rills

euphoric rising

flower painted battlefields

gold in to dross in to gold

*
