Phantasm

15th August 2014

your ghost
is accompanied by
the mystical
and miserable
whimper
of a 
duduk
ethereal half notes
sombre
mournful
and raw
perforate
even the most
rapturous
joie de vivre
each note grips
the stillness
bleating
like the pang 
of an un-sutured wound
trembling
like wind descended
on a double reed
the gust of your
vanishing
is the breath of
this illusory melody
it saturates the wordless ether
with the resounding din
of your shameless
disappearance

The Simple LifeZumbarak Mountains, Croatia2012
On an early morning walk around a tiny village in the Zumbarak Mountains of Croatia, I happened upon this moment.  Suddenly I was transported to a world of such simplicity, where this woman had been waking up before dawn all of her life to milk the cows, feed the livestock and work the land.  She had never married and even suffered a stroke, yet none of it had erased the beautiful smile on her face.
