Dead Books

Posted in Books, October with tags , , , , , , on October 28, 2017 by Mj Rains

So into the Halloween vibe I grab my books featuring the dead off my shelves…

And download the ebook Red Dragon by Thomas Harris to read over the weekend, along with catching a few more episodes of Hannibal on Amazon prime video.

This Wit is set.

What are you reading or watching with a scary vibe this Halloween season?

The Love of October

Posted in October with tags , , , , , , , , on October 20, 2017 by Mj Rains

A child looking at ruins grows younger
but cold
and wants to wake to a new name
I have been younger in October
than in all the months of spring
walnut and may leaves the color
of shoulders at the end of summer
a month that has been to the mountain
and become light there
the long grass lies pointing uphill
even in death for a reason
that none of us knows
and the wren laughs in the early shade now
come again shining glance in your good time
naked air late morning
my love is for lightness
of touch foot feather
the day is yet one more yellow leaf
and without turning I kiss the light
by and old well on the last of the month
gathering wild rose hips
in the sun.

– W. S. Merwin, The Love of October

 

October everywhere…

He is outside of everything, and alien everywhere. He is an aesthetic solitary.

His beautiful, light imagination is the wing that on the autumn evening just brushes

the dusky window.

~~ Henry James
