Echoing Light

Rating: 3.0

When I was beginning to read I imagined
that bridges had something to do with birds
and with what seemed to be cages but I knew
that they were not cages it must have been autumn
with the dusty light flashing from the streetcar wires
and those orange places on fire in the pictures
and now indeed it is autumn the clear
days not far from the sea with a small wind nosing
over dry grass that yesterday was green
the empty corn standing trembling and a down

of ghost flowers veiling the ignored fields

''ghost flowers veiling the ignored fields''-I like this poem in which the words are used to paint the colors. In autumn, nature becomes red, orange, or yellow. It is a season of leaving or dying. The earth turns from east to west, from green to white, and some life bridges are cut temporary or permanently.
