Glowing backlight

December again,
and anew the final day
of this dampycold month,
with timidly, reserved
airy colours.

A touch of glassy blue,
a wipe of pigeon-grey,
wilted whites, windswept
blacks, against an early
evening twilight, and if it
– royal error – does not
snow again, but raining
cats and dogs, you will see
in the glimmer of oldfashioned
streetlamps an uplighting
pavement of hesitating
soaking wet dutch gold.

There hasn’t to be said
so much, but unsaid does not mean
that it goes without saying,
or as a matter of course. Hidden
inner city, between your walls
we go through our finest dusky hours.
Tomorrow morning everything
is still apparently the same,
nevertheless undeniable too,
in a different glowing backlight.

Jos Letschert Oleg, thanks a lot! Since I am no longer live in the Netherlands, I see my town of birth Amersfoort with different - more loving - eyes when I come back for a visit.
