The photo taken by Frogg Corpse is of Asters (White Heath) taken September 17th, 2021 and shot in Louisville, Kentucky in William Taylor’s backyard.
Pandæmonium in White Heath
Lost was I, to the enchantment ov sprigs,
weaved from the pluckings of their nest.
roosting autumn — Persephone throned
aster-melting twilight: calm.
Thoughts of wind, which name drew
threshing petals encircle strife,
offering wheat: by nysian mule
stripped near summers dried.
Terra cotta touch
love undying — tithed to omen
until new winter coughs-back-out.
Athenastras Coveting Ostara
Bittersweet · seeds consumed
elysian well spitting alba,
golden roads balmed by chariot
anointing silver-lakes in parting
Caressed by Artemis,
mourned by Nyx,
trickle into the temple of ever sleep.
Bricked hands wed with balefire
Magic conscripted near Hecataea
Three dog moon
Observance: sorrows torch.
