First thing, try and locate the scene.
Guesses, possible terrain.
I must have been there,
stood in that place of foam and speed.
The rock, a living thing, breathing –
the trees and leaves making
a green cave of sky.
Four, five tributaries powering
down in ghostly flumes.
For an amateur snap, it's not bad.
An indication, a clue...
What dates it is the reverse.
AGFA. The fact that it was sent away
to be developed. Film, then.
The water held in a frame of 6 by 4.
Stopped mid-torrent to be lost somewhere,
misplaced, put in a box and forgotten.
My life similarly frozen.
Trying to get back to the source.
The sense of time and energy flowing again.
