Walking in the fens

Fog lighted by will-o-wisps

I see no boundaries

Mist

Mist creeps over grass

And the Otherworld draws near

Keep cold iron close

Hungry

Hoping that the train

Will hurry up and arrive

With growling stomach

Waiting

Looking left and right

Still waiting on the platform

For the reunion

Love?

Not in love with him

(No deep feelings at first sight)

But in lust with him

Bridge

Towers on the waves

Strong steel wire straining between

We are connected

Forty-one storeys

Flashing glass and raw concrete

Autumn

Autumn Aesculus Horse Chestnut Tree Orange Fall

I spend a long time in the park stuffing my pockets, and on the way back, I buy several boxes of matches at the kiosk.

It is time for undersized horses and oversized ants. It is time for hedgehogs and spiders to be friends.

It is time for chestnut animals.

 

Late Summer Sunshine

The phlox gush over the edge of my terrace in a waterfall of light blue and lilac. The chrysanthemums stretch out their first petals to the world, as I eat the last strawberry.

It is deceptively sunny.

However, the wind chills the nose and makes it attempt to run away to warmer climates, and I know that without my sheepskins I would be shivering. Still, I sit in my garden and soak in the golden rays, quietly bidding them farewell and hoping that spring will come early.
