Last night I finished reading Selected Poems by Tomas Transtromer (edited by Robert Hass, with several translators).
What stunning metaphors! Metaphors that seem to quicken from an inborn reflex, rather than from an intentional effort to invent correspondences.
I love the golden aura of your photo.
Take the yellow out-
The world turns cold.
Make courage bold.
Transforms to lime;
Turns cool and then
It’s violet’s time.
Yes, the reflex is ne’er contrived!
