Stone

by Michael Andrews







 

Artist Book

The work collected here under the title of Stone represents both poetry and photography that spans nearly every one of my major projects. Stones, it seems, are ubiquitous. The two major categories relating to stone are stone found in the natural ecosystem and stone worked by human artisans as found in archeological ruins and other monuments.

Poems

Stones


The great and mysterious
made men and stones
from earth and spirit
and from the winter mist.

Every stone,
like the face of every man,
is a picture of character
and understanding —

and like every flower,
portrays the wisdom of death.

For every man
a sacred stone

is waiting to be found.
