In my Fenway neighborhood two cherry trees in a court yard greet each-other with exuberant hellos. Gorgeously attired in their coronation robes they pay homage to the Goddess Persephone who’s joyous song of rebirth awakens us to a morning of celebration.
Along Park Drive strong branches hold pink cloud-blossoms tightly in a jealous grasp. Apollo’s sharp arrow pierces the glowering sky and his brilliant chariot charges through. His blazing naked body beguiles her irresistible beauty. Lovers kiss and a single peddle drifts on the rising heat of their passion.
In the Boston Public Garden regiments of well breed tulips in parade dress march proudly claiming their own importance against the presumption of the towers of commerce
Urns and finials, dials measuring time, brownstone spire tipped by a proud weathervane, points the way of universal truth, arbitrary forces of capricious moments, all held in the thrall of Spring’s sentinels,blossoming trees
sculptor of “As If It Were Already Here” Rose Kennedy Greenway, Boston Massachusetts
“The sculpture is made by hand-splicing rope and knotting twine into an interconnected mesh of more than a half-million nodes. When any one of its elements moves, every other element is affected. Monumental in scale and strength yet delicate as lace, it fluidly responds to ever-changing wind and weather. Its fibers are 15 times stronger than steel yet incredibly lightweight, making the sculpture able to lace directly into three skyscrapers as a soft counterpoint to hard-edged architecture. It is a physical manifestation of interconnectedness and strength through resiliency.”
