Suppose a knot of blue and silver glass, twisted and tense, occupies some sunlit shelf. The green of a vase may swirl skyward and the nut-tray's color holds only so much of that one tone and none of that translatable shape. Far from our sky-colored shelf, factory workers punch out scores and scores of such sacred beginnings as this one. Even so, the philosopher of paradise dreams that his world braces for dawn.
