A heat storm over the sea arrives at the eastern portals of the Bugarach. Terrific clouds rise up immeasurable swells of brilliant or black cumulus. The sky is green. Trees have been posted as sentinels. In the iridescence of a double rainbow chords of colour are inverted. The elements modulate; cloud has the quality of mountain, air of earth. Red is green, black is white. As the Bugarach rises through and beyond the world so rises the storm, inflating his mirror with hot respiration.
