High Tide of Limestone
c. Michael St.Mark 2011
Birkrigg common; Furness, Cumbria
Poem integral to the Work
Once upon a Carboniferous Period time
COMPRESSEDSHELLSBONES of billions of wee sea creatures
made the sea bed, then
were lifted high into the sky
by gargantuan planetry forces
a millimetre a year…….
over millions of years…….
I sit for a minute upon on this ancient gray graveyard in the sky
contemplating eternity while
digesting a Milky Way

Very deep and thought provoking
yes tis true!—i love my dreams it makes it worthwhile going to bed, better than the tv and cinema because i get to be the star 😀
Better asleep than awake hey. Lucky you 🙂
well all you have to do is hire a wetsuit and i can be the babe 😀 Ok,ok, stop laughing! i know it’s along time since i was classed as a babe but in can dream can’t i.
You can out-dream a lot of people so you claim 😉
Modest too eh! 😀
It’s a magical place on Birkrigg, all those years of history under your feet. Hard to take in really that so much time has passed and yet nothing has hardly changed there.
Indeed, so maybe ye olde limestone needs bringing up to dada date via the addition of a babe in a wetsuit with DADA plastered on her chest, standing on a surfboard on one of those “waves”….
How DadAisTic is that!
btw, would have done the wetsuit shoot but I can’t afford the props 😉
Beautiful photo and a very clever title!
Ahh but it’s the job of the professional dAdAist to be very, very clever 😉
