THE AUTUMNAL SOUNDS OF THE VIOLA

THE AUTUMNAL SOUNDS OF THE VIOLA
© Farouk Asvat

Black is the orchestra.

The autumnal sounds of the viola
Sound strange:

The season has forgotten to disrobe,
Keeping her chocolate wrappers for another day.

'Winter does not stay long,' I muse,
As it caresses my brain with its icy breath.

     It is evening all afternoon
     And spring is slow in coming
     Like all the years of our lives:
