Project 52 is a weekly blog activity in 2017. It derives from 2016's Project 366 (aka Project365+1). Its purpose is to provide an on-line community of practice for poets and artists who wish – over the year – to develop materials for publication, exhibition or performance.

Jeff Skewes #2 draft 3.
I see this work as the 2nd (of more than thirty but less than 52?) poems in my Silk on the Road project; a road trip of memory and myth; an allegorical journey that takes place during an inexact time across the imaginary lands I've been conjuring to part-mimic those of the fabled Silk Road (although think magic-realism with historical and geographical liberties) in order to form a more lucid and contemporary narrative.
'Start' is a kind-of second prelude to the Silk series, a simple kick starter so I have an eye on the rhythm here and of the unfolding over-all project which is always tricky as they are yet to appear.
My own visual images are a tandem element for Silk on the Road.
This is an updated draft titled as 'Begin', an earlier was posted on Monday for my #2 / 52
