There is no escape, the first signs are all around.
This is not the first mushroom,
but certainly the most photogenic.
Mushrooms grow all year round,
but the larger ones have their own season
from late August till early November.
Soon I will feel deprived of the light.
Dark after 6pm.
Western Men (and women) have given us
the shock therapy of daylight un-saving time.
Re-adjusting to nature –
shaped into a shocking experience.
Only humans deploy such crazy schemes
Being deprived of light and colour is not the only issue.
Darkness, rain and cold will force me to live indoors.
Confined to a living room and a kitchen.
Time spent alone will shrink to nothing
And getting a fresh nose,
to escape the noises
of kitchen, TV,
and fighting children,
will be less obvious.
Winter shrivels up ‘my’ space
my mental self will more be challenged
an exercise that wouldn’t be too bad
if it would not last
for half a year.
