Clarity


Brian Jones, "Raking Leaves"  Painting, Michael Gibson Gallery, London.


Yesterday
the fog bound-up the dying world
in white gauze,

but the autumn sun shred the fog,
would not permit
white lies,
inconsequential slips
to ease the passionate leaves'
passage into night.

Righteous winds ripped
the despairing leaves 
and sent them twisting joyfully
high over my house,

to the yard 
several over.

I got my neighbor's leaves
so it all 
worked out
in the end.
