Mixed Moods

in #poetry6 months ago

I see for others... in order to put on canvas
the sudden apparitions which come to me

—Pablo Picasso


A day of mixed moods—

Sky dark,
Then white and blue;

Wind brightening the room
And dimming as if on cue.

The shadow play of trees
Torments me with your grief,

Conjures your form
But when I turn you're gone.

It’s a sunny day in June
For a ghost to be exhumed;

I’d expect you in the fall
When there is no life at all.
