Like a falling leaf…

Cover of Planet of the Blind....man and dog....

The boy in me
How to take him along
As the years advance?

Finnish poet Paavo Haavikko:
I hear a happy tale, it makes me sad:
no-one will remember me for long.

The boy-blind…

He was never “in” time
Like those oaks you see
In certain forests

Still green
Though there’s more of darkness
And we’re long into December.
