Portrait of Filippo


In this picture, Filippo uses a tamper shank plate with a jackhammer to soften up the soil, readying it for Landscaping.

In Antelope Valley, California, USA, the land is very hard and impacted, especially on a construction site where nothing had been erected for a very long time.

Filippo was softening the soil so that the perimeter of this site could be beautiful someday.

only in isolation



UncertainMe and all her AmbiguousValues

only in isolation

adjacently, it’s rough, in a jagged way,
as it tickles a bare shoulder;
it was just a breeze.

conceptually devoid when
listening retrospectively
an invention that both teaches
and transforms, maybe in a book.

at her next gathering, so complex
she validates the ultimate algorithm
housing in the rurals.

will she build using inherited space?

only in isolation:
     environment
     landscape
     twisted air.

Sonnet XXXVI


Mystery of the Lights of Mankind

Sonnet XXXVI

Halogen splendidly shines. Tungsten floods.
Illuminated motorways span
the distinctive desert landscape. Light buds
are a bright incandescent urban plan.
Congruent energies are constrained
to white lines. Regions delineated
by mercury-vapors can be contained
in a contrasting field. Initiated,
baffling magic underscores mankind’s offspring.
They grew wings to fly and live between light
and dark. They see spider web lamps flick’ring
when sparkling crystals twinkle through the night.
Astronauts see cities like a portrait
as they sojourn through levels of orbit.

This comes from

It’s a picture by @Astro_Wheels AKA Douglas H. Wheelock taken on May 29, 2011 from the International Space Station.

It was hard to write. What to write about for such a cool but strange picture? I had to research types of lighting to get some great terms to add in (halogen, mercury-vapor, incandescent.)
