The Landscapes of Vilhelm Hammershøi by Vona Groarke


The Landscapes of Vilhelm Hammershøi

Between water reading itself a story
with no people in it

and fields, illegible, and a sky
that promises nothing,

least of all what will happen now,
are the trees

that do not believe in
any version of themselves

not even the one in which
they are apparently everyday trees

and not a sequence of wooden frames
for ordinary leaves.
