The final word accumulation of my 14th poetry collection MOTVÄRN (COUNTERMEASURES)




Autumn

 

Ah, autumn is an inward thought,

huddling

behind a downhearted's wrinkled brow,

his reflection unnerving

in the café window

on top of the damp and withdrawn scenery

of the town square,

as he sits, empty, at a table,

coffee left untouched

 

Meanwhile,

deep in the coniferous wilderness

of the north,

a raven crouches on a pine bough,

close to the trunk

quavering, talking to himself,

wings folded

 

The August moon rises imperceptibly,

its round face bright and mute,

as everything listens;

the entire world a speechless haiku

 

In the town a man slips into the night,

his raincoat pulled tight,

the lights from the café throwing his shadow

before him

across the cobblestones

as he merges with the dark

This is wonderful! You really have condensed autumn as a feeling into verse. Wow, just wow. I love the imagery, especially the juxtaposition of the man and the crow. Fuck, this is amazing.

Brilliantly descriptive. Startrek* Scottie says, "It is life, Jim, but not as we know it". But we do. We can see this because your accumulation of words has entered our psyche and indelibly painted the scenes. Some fantastic similes here too. The seasons exist in so many paradigms, don't they.
