The Speed of Sight

By Colin Goedecke

Poetry | Paperback


This debut collection was inspired over a decade. It brings readers into a series of mis-en-scenes. From a tranquil harbor in Maine to a fanciful farmhouse in Holland. From observing a lunar eclipse, or being shaved in a Tuscan barber shop, to making family wine below the brownstoned surface of New York's Upper West Side. From living portraits of friends to magnesium flashes of memory. The constant thread in these 55 poems is the immediacy of seeing; not just with the eyes but with other senses; with the emotions and imagination. A next collection, The Blue Bathers, is in the works, among others, as well as planned CD recordings of the plein air poet reading his own, selected poems.



COLIN GOEDECKE aka The Floating Poet, is a plein air poet, impressionist in word and image, of place, moment, gesture, atmosphere, light and shadow, color. Of landscapes, waterscapes, lifescapes. Most poems find me; arrive suddenly, unexpectedly, when I'm out in the world and the wilds of living. Where they often wash in like watercolors: all fresh, fluid, luminous. Where I'm inspired, with an innocent eye, to distill and embody experiences in language I and others can use to enter, re-enter, share them. Sometimes, too, expressing an indelible impression through a camera I use as a 'fourth eye,' a kind of poetography: images that bend, blend the lines between photography and painting; that are never still; that convey an energy or essence resonating before me; evoke a story, a reverie.
