A CERTAIN SOLAR SLANT
(10/20/15)


the late
afternoons
in autumn
are best

the light
falls obliquely
casting long
shadows
from and upon
the drying

dying

vegetation

the images
seem more
melancholy

more
meaningful

gone
are the
vestal vestiges
of eternal
life

the seasons
finally
seem in sync
with human
mortality
