Looking at the linear patterns on these stones, Pierre Jardin was awash in thought and adrift in time. His musings moved among the multiple timelines inscribed on the rocks–geological cycles of subduction and uplift; lunar cycles pulling the ocean over the rocks, tumbling and smoothing them over and over; cerebral cycles of brain states imprinted by dwelling on the stones at length in the dao-now…. Mental concentration and verbal compression yielded a haiku composition. Pierre called this petriverse Rockery Reverie #1, in tribute to Chinese literati who would gather and drink and gaze on their prized rocks and write poems about them.
