Crown of Leaves

 

“Crown of Leaves” Series Artist Statement

Constant as the sun, deciduous as the seasons. Who will sing the leaf? Far cousins in country weddings, Naiads in dappled shadows. Victors of august races And those who apply poultices humbly gathered in the woods. Who will sing of knowing the leaf? The lanceolar, the dentate And those, perhaps not known From far-away taxonomies. Who will speak for the familiar the supple, brittle, the ones after whom are named A thousand figments of our organization? No one. So perhaps I will.
