Still Life

Still Life

written by: Thaddeus Hutyra



What used to be
One day became hoar-frost
With star and fern-like ice crystals.

Earlier it was dew
Alike plenty pearl beads
On the neck of the spring maiden.

And before that
It was salty droplets
Crystalline in their purity.

Heard like a thunder of God’s anger
In splash after their falling down
On a hard surface.

Yet it all started so innocently
Spotlessly clear sky
Of our affections!

Time has left its mark on me
What there used to be
Now became still life.

And the whole lot
Like a picture of Pablo Picasso!

One hung
On the wall of my memories.
