Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem is an ekphrastic one inspired by a wolf calendar photo. The October wolf’s grey paws seemed to join it to the rock it stood on, so the connection between wolf and Earth seemed a good topic for a mirror poem. Here it is:
Wolves 2012 Calendar, October Star Wolf
fire melting gold
fall full flow
leaves oval shaped
seem to poke
fun behind rump
on thin reaching branches
both stand on rock, green and grey coloured
under strong running legs
paws resemble plinths
keep head grounded
feminine tongue smiles
sunrise eyes shine
below mountain peaks
Hi, it’s William Wolfsworth, satirical comedy poetry correspondent at the Greenygrey inspired by legendary Romantic poet William Wolfsworth. I forgot to tell you that last week’s Reflection 12 from 242 Mirror Poems and Reflectionsmirrored Human and Society Chicken and Egg Dilemma Oddly Solved, a poem posted on fmpoetry.wordpress.com just over three years ago.
New Mirror Poem
I was reminded of that because Marc Latham posted a new Folding Mirror poem on fmpoetry yesterday, and I have just imported it into the greenYgrey world. It mixes life philosophy with lots of natural world metaphors. Here it is:
Translucent Fall, Rise Transparent
life’s monotonous dreamscape
colour on dancing shadows
less rational than raindrops
doing what comes naturally
breaking an ocean apart
before returning to cloud
swimming and flying, living and dying
is dry land closer
to sea or air
should we even care
it’s sensible to sleep
while moonshine paints haunting
death’s monochrome nightmares
We’ve had greenygrey human, wolves, animals and natural environment focused XaW Files, so what could be the fifth and last XaW File. Well, super fittingly for the former Andy Wolfhol, it’s art focusing on the previous four categories.
Hi, it’s Baron Wolfman, head honcho of Greenygrey Creation in the absence of Andy Wolfhol; our inspirations in the human world are Baron Wolman and Andy Warhol.
Having analysed my files, the Greenygrey has decided that the far east of Russia is the best place to start the search for ol’ Wolfhol, with strong signals received from that location in the Googlesphere.
For a fashion midweek festival, which this week has turned into, while Stella Lagerwolf-Bruno was at London Fashion Week last week I was travelling through time back to the future… or as it can otherwise be known, flicking back a few pages in the Metro.
