BlackKaji #7

19 Jan 2020





We are paddling towards a faint glow
We have been adrift for too
Long
Dreaming of
Sand from anywhere
Softness to step on
Softness to slip into
A land imagined


But
Nearing the source, a stunning
Revelation


No lighthouse, only flames
The island is on fire
Burning trees before us
Black sea behind
And our weather-beaten raft, caught
Between


BlackKaji. A study of the unseen, unsound, unsuspecting, unsustainable, unstable. This is a series conceived by Ujikaji and The Observatory.
