On Odilon Redon’s “The Mysterious Boat”

“My drawings inspire, and are not to be defined.  They place us, as does music, in the ambiguous realm of the undetermined.” – Odilon Redon

A blue boat
with gold sail
rocks across 
the white-capped,
rough, green sea.
Her clasped hands
on her lap.
His one hand
holds the tiller;
moves in the
opposite
direction
of where they
are heading.
Behind them,
the fiery,
gold mountain,
they escaped
with treasure,
burns.
