Friday Night Flicks: Cosmology

I don’t usually post videos by book artists in the same week as they are announced to the public. I am making an exception this week because Helen Hiebert’s book Cosmology is such a simple and elegant structure that I thought it should be shared as widely as possible. It is also a collaborative effort as you will see by the credits at the end of the video.

 

 

Here is the text of the poem in case you missed some of it in the video.

Cosmology, by Carl Adamshick

Silence is a window
open to the mountain air.
The window, a transparent map,
of moonlight showing
an ocean floor
and the lost city
where your child grew tall.

Memory is the water
you hear falling
on the mountain
as your hand pushes
the silence closed.

 

Perhaps you will read some poetry this weekend, or even write some.
