TOMAS TRANSTROMER’S POEM : ‘LANDSCAPE WITH SUNS’ (a few thoughts)

A SHORT POEM OF THE LITERATURE NOBEL, TOMAS TRANSTROMER THAT PRESENTS POET’S INTIMATIONS WITH THE NATURE AND ITS LANDSCAPES IN HIGHLY PERSONAL PLUS SPIRITUAL TERMS.
TIME REMAINS AN ENEVITABLE FACTOR HERE AS THE POET TAKES PLUNGE INTO HIS LIFE WHICH IS NEAR ITS END AND ONLY A LITTLE MORE TIME HE HAS THAT HE WILL ABLY ENGAGE WITH THE NATURE: THE SMALL FORESTS N ISLANDS THAT ARE AVAILABLE NEAR HIS PLACE. .
HE BECOMES A BIT NOSTALGIC AND A BIT MOURNFUL WHEN HE SAYS THAT THE FOREST,THE SUN WILL REMAIN BUT HE WILL NOT BE THERE TO RELISH THE SUSTENANCE THAT HE HAS ALWAYS FOUND AMID THESE NATURAL SCENERIES.
THE POET IS ALSO PROPHETIC IN TONE WHEN HE REFERS PHRASES LIKE: GREY N HALF DEAD FOREST AND THE GLOWING SUN. . . .KIND OF ENVIRONMENTAL DEGRADATION!
