lacrimosa

Lacrimosa
Lacrimosa dies illa
Qua resurget ex favilla
Judicandus homo reus.

Huic ergo parce, Deus
Pie Jesu Domine
Dona eis requiem, 
Amen.

golden light



light and leaves have almost disappeared 
the naked twigs shiver under the north wind
the whole landscape becomes a scream 
the light is leaving us
but not before saying farewell in golden clothes…

shades of light





changes of light and weather
change the mood under the short autumn day light moments

to a stranger

Passing stranger! you do not know how longingly I look upon you,
You must be he I was seeking, or she I was seeking, (it comes to me, as of a dream,)
I have somewhere surely lived a life of joy with you,
All is recall’d as we flit by each other, fluid, affectionate, chaste, matured,
You grew up with me, were a boy with me, or a girl with me,        
I ate with you, and slept with you—your body has become not yours only, nor left my body mine only,
You give me the pleasure of your eyes, face, flesh, as we pass—you take of my beard, breast, hands, in return,
I am not to speak to you—I am to think of you when I sit alone, or wake at night alone,
I am to wait—I do not doubt I am to meet you again,
I am to see to it that I do not lose you…

(To a Stranger; Walt Whitman)

what are you thinking?


I see you there,

thinking,
pulling your self into a deep contraction
attacked,
defeated,
alone and abandoned

I wonder why…
and shrive.
terrible feelings of despair
get into my head
