Flat earth

Flat earth

             Flat earth, John Lyons (30 x 25 cm, oil on canvas)

A topography
of the flat mineral earth

of fields and pastures
fertile in the imagination

a surface upon which
colours have been laid

and certain symmetries
marked out which please

the mathematical eye
the circle of life

from root to rust
finally squared

John Lyons
