The ‘Studies of Matter’ [ Étude de Matière]

Early ‘Studies of Matter’ . From Vasarely 3 by Victor Vasarely

Uptake the hues
The saps and each scent.
Let every passion of life
Take its stage.
Fill up your sights
With episodes spent.
Unblock your heart
From your birth-given cage.è

Savour the scraps
As you would every treasure
Measure your worth
By each Sun not the crowd.
Tell it with beat
And study what matters
Take up tomorrow’s
And shout them out, loud.

“By studying everything from mud to antimatter,
we build collections of thought about
our place in Space.”

What’s YOUR take on things?

What’s YOUR view?

What’s YOUR position in this long human race?


Within the Wise

Hidden inside ever simple solution
Is a host of solved problems.

Wisedom arrives after many episodes
Of pained failure.
