Halloween Poetry 2010

Come sit with me; I will tell you a story
Kom, sätt dig här; jag ska berätta en sak

Gates of darkness opened in autumn
Mörkrets portar öppnades på hösten

I watched the twin ghosts play and vanish
into thin October air
Jag såg tvillingspökena leka och försvinna
i kall oktoberluft

I wanted to be your words, wrapped in paper, tucked in by the leaves
Jag ville vara dina ord, inslagna i papper, bäddad av bladen

The sky no longer holds the birds; it has no wings, you have to fly
on your own
Himlen håller inte längre fåglarna, har inga vingar
du måste flyga själv

I watched the falling birds
Jag såg fåglarna falla

I wanted to be the words you wrote, wrapped inside a hidden book
Jag ville vara orden du skrev, inbäddad, gömd i en bok

~ Maria-Thérèse Andersson 16/10 2010

"The sea - I like most of all (but the picture of the bench in autumncolours, in todays blogg, was also very nice!).

Birgitta Larsson said...

Den sjunkande carouselen är fantasieggande
och längtan... mörkermystiken och lager på lager av tid i Carousel III får min röst.

Lite höstpoesi - bra !

Sedan blir det ännu kallare:
"Skarsnön ännu blank
rimfrost faller ur träden
himlen koboltblå"

Natalie said...

Very beautiful post, your pictures are quite haunting.

This has been my first ever blog party but I've such a great time :)

Catrin said...

Hej! Jag tycker ju så klart väldigt mycket om I will fly to you-bilden, men även The tea party-bilden. Varför jag fastnat för just den vet jag inte, jag brukar fastna för lite mörkare saker, men.. den e bara sååå mysig. =) En gladbild.

Keep up!

Michelle Frae Cummings said...

Oh yeas, I am already a follower of your. Your blog is always inspiring.

There is so much lovelyness in your shop. I don't know how to pick just one. I think I would have to choose Gnome & his pipe because Christmas is coming up and he would be some holiday cheer to my little empty apartment. Fingers crossed. xxxx

Eileen said...

Wonderful, wonderful post. I just LOVE that second photo. I didn't see that one in your Etsy shop, but if I missed it, I'd love to have that one. Or the Blossom photograph. :) I love your idea about my plans for after Christmas judging by the books I had stacked up - if only!!! Too funny.

julochka said...

your altered images are always so evocative. these are very halloween-y and full of stories- spoken and unspoken. mysterious stories.

Anonymous said...
