HINTING AT THE DARKNESS

HINTING AT THE DARKNESS

A Poem by SHEEMA HUQ
"

Prose Poetry

"

                     Measuring up to the outdoors; harsh, damp,

               with the vagaries of  cold and an old oil lamp;

 

                          Hinting at the darkness,

                            at what lays beneath

 

               Tussling branches,  waver and jerk, ahead of

               tumbling and twisting bedrocks. to which the

              trees,  cling to their expansive appeal, as they

                start to reveal,  their vociferous selves, in

              their early autumn wealth; yellows and oranges,

              converge, as rustics colours constantly emerge. 

 

                          Hinting at the darkness,

                            at what lays beneath

              

                The scene becomes obscured, by wildflowers,

              variously abandoned, mushrooms stand immodestly,

              sulking berries look lost, some are prominent,

                 others seems to hide, if so, who from ?

                      - a charmless, anonymous boss?

Such an intriguing write again, Sheema. I have two interpretations in here: First, literally speaking about nature and the change of season, you described a picture of a forest. Second, metaphorically speaking about a scene in a workplace...new boss, new regulations, etc...like changing of season.

Thanks for this thought-provoking piece.

Searching for the mechanics of nature that you feel are hidden behind nature itself.. I quite enjoyed the idea

Thanks you Pryde for such a compliment :)
there is a hint of the survivakl of the fittest in your write..
nice message to us all in society and a wakeup call for the unfit to
fight for themselves (the mushrooms type) and for the fit (the wildflowers) to lend a hand to the unfit to
let them be!
nice one friend
