Based on the exhibition Bearings by artist Caroline Underwood

Myself far left, with Caroline centre and David on right installing one piece of canvas for Bearings

Canvas vast to match the impossible scale
a universe of sky, land and sea.
Great scoops and swathes of marbled grey,
monochrome simplicity.

White and bright the moon shines through
between clouds, in tempest thrown,
nature’s wildest dance performed
in skies and seas, flecked with foam.

Horizons streaked with distant storms.
Waves toil towards the shore
endless motion in infinite universe,
then standing in the fore

a delicate sail. Frail, pale.
Against night blackened bands of land,
alive in silhouette, textured with grass.
dancing with the wild and wilful wind.
