“Autumn is as joyful and sweet as an untimely end.” Remy de Gourmont

Unspeakable

The seeds of my tangled life are sown 
along the edge of autumn's invitation,
a propitiation for all that is yet to arise,
an imaginarium of coloured experiences
only the sense can speak, a whelming
of the darkened cave transcended in
spring's awaited consolation.

    Excellent quadrille Paul. I found you perspective on the un-use of the word season to be most effective.

  6. Even though the joy of the potential on the horizon cannot be enunciated, you’ve built a fine trellis of words upon which it may climb. Excellent poem, Paul. I love this one.

  8. With autumn’s chill biting at my ankles, spring seems a long way off. ‘imaginarium’ – what a wonderful word.
