    Poem Commentary

    Yes the new season coming has planted a heavy feeling of melancholy deja vu over me these last few days..I remember so clear our walks together this time of year. He would be so excited it seemed, dragging me off on another one of his adventures, some new place he found while out paying no attention to the time..yes that was him, he was a true free spirit and I miss him....

    deja vu

    As night descends upon this day
    Darkness quickly taking over the light
    I find myself again in that mood
    Contemplating many reasons of why

    Why do things change around me?
    It often seems as if it happens too quickly
    But in truth change reveals itself in slow motion
    Our thinking is deceptive of it's true meaning

    No wonder life sends us messages of deja vu
    We cannot escape what occurs around us
    When the days become shorter, memories are triggered
    Our attention gets sharper as we cycle another change

    As if we are trying to catch up
    Maybe stop this feeling in it's tracks
    But alas it is only life and we must move forward
    I cannot continually hide in the past

    With each change, each new season
    I am carried further and further from the past
    Precious memories become dimmer
    I try to grasp them and hold on tightly

    Then I stop and inhale deeply
    Sweet, yes it carries a feeling of sweet freshness
    And I remember his words as we walked
    As if they were spoken only yesterday

    Darling, I love this time of year
    The air is crisp and fresh
    My body feels alive, renewed, by the chill in the air
    Come on dear, lets kick up some leaves as we walk

    Wise words put together so eloquently. Soft delivery of truth that can be so harsh. The picture is stunning. Sometimes our memories are the best things we have.

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
