Delirium

The rust coloured leaves
the furious sun
the simmering heat –
Are they the silly dreams
of our feverish imagination?
 
The sombre crowd
that hunts like a mob
and sings with the poets –
Surely we must be sick
to be a part of this madness?
 
The gentle morning breeze
the quietly flowing river
the farmer on his ox-cart –
Do we imagine the calm dawn
to soothe our frayed nerves?
 
The dark, silent night
and the shrill cry
of the owl –
Is it the call of the soul
giving expression to our loneliness?
