humdrum hermit

steppenwolf erasure poem & photoart
photoart & poem – ©2017 Laura Granby

moist pavements in tears and veiled
lamps sucked reflections from wet ground
I used to love the dark, sad evenings
moods of melancholy wrapped
the leafless landscape full of poetry
– now the cup was emptied
to the living heart of the world

Some erasure poetry lifted from Hermann Hesse’s novel – (see text Steppenwolf p19) for Victoria’s prompt:Look What I Found! dVerse MTB
and despite being a bit of a blog hermit this weekend am linking up with the Poetry Pantry
