Pale moons

Pablo Félix Jiménez

 

A pale moon illuminates the courtyard. A family table contains treasures.
A thorn fox in the undergrowth.
look at the silver courtyard.
An embroidered tablecloth halfway,
A basket with raisins, they glow blackened, a wool ball of white wool becomes tangled, and a pencil case has been empty.
The house is alone, no one sleeps. Everything was stopped.
The pale moon illuminates the courtyard, and the thorn fox goes into the shadows.
A door opens and closes,
the wind comes in and out at whim.
No one has returned to the house. No one… No one survived… No one…
To the elongated hand… of time…
