Not In Isolation

On the Ashburton Art Safari

we jazzed to the saxophonist

and twisted North, East and West

in order to sample artistic delights.

Projections, paintings, collage and sound –

twigs in rainfall and water from abroad;

local libertarians and footfall recorded

from the old wooden bench in town.

These creative endeavours nourished

my senses and made me feel warm

in my shoes.  Or was that the cider,

as we danced, later, in a happy

communion of collaboration!
