Untitled 1965-(a garden for Mark Rothko)

Originally uploaded by andrewstenning.


The ravishingly beautiful garden of nineteen sixty five.

A crucial sacred announcement- inventing spaces for the magic eye.

But we will never fathom piercing points, Spherical-pulpitations-and such, Bromide explosions with clandestine undertones - FLAME at a touch.

The color-field diametric
Obstacles with commentary-
illuminate the patch.

The Orange of a Berberis,
Curtailment is what we lack!.
Withdraw into happiness 'THE GARDEN'-a restorative act.

Automatism is natures utensil-On the topsy-turvy sward.
Wholesome but noxious-(EUPHORIC)!
-for us it's just reward.

Milksop & weep before the Earth-!
It's not juvenile in thought'
Justifiable maturity involvement-brings, With immortal thirsty thrall.

Ethereal emotion always misunderstood, -YELLOW leads to ORANGE to BLACK, A sense of mystery it's countenance divine.


Essentially seeking transcendent might.
And the knowledge,
Simply melted, into a perfect light-a prodigious amalamation covering the mind,- that is in the garden 'Untitled nineteen sixty five.

for Mark Rothko.
