Surreptitious Look

Take a look at @JonasAlmgren’s Tweet:

This is not a pic but a painting
Of a village in Autmn
In miniature.
A picture
Of careless sky and no people
Or signs of life.
The detail is fine
Silver catches my eye
Like tiny tinsel barbed wire
On a fence
Pricking the picture
On which I cannot superimpose
Another tincture or hue.
Dwellings unhuddled close together
Unrambled shacks
But warm to my sight
Even as the colouring of straw or hay
Threatens a kind of dismay
Not unfolded but hinted.
Surreptitious memories from books and films and plays.
