Silver Matter

Exhibition: Artist:

Claire Wiltsher | Mixed Media on Canvas | 23.5 x 23.5 inches



Shapes change, metamorphosis

Monsters from the Jurassic form in trees,

Blink again, figures dance.

Phosphorous leaves rustle in acid sunlight

Threaded on bare fractured twigs,

Through the air they take flight, like confetti.


Watch and listen, periphery vision

Black sleek shape, cut out against the rain,

Cormorant standing still and proud, he gleams,

Wings outstretched, orchestrating the river.

Fast silver water passes him by

Soon turns thick, devouring floating matter

Fat and full, ready to burst its guts

Then drag the banks to a new destiny,

Water marks.

– Claire Wiltsher
