October brings to mind, among other things, the word haunting. Not as in scary, but as in the sort of ghostly echo that follows you after experiencing a piece of art.

Like the movement of this couple, as well as the melody of this song.

or these words from Rae Armantrout’s poem “Guess”:

….the view
is softened by curtains.

The present moment
is an exception,

is the queen bee
a hive serves,

or else an orphan.

or the work of photographer Brad Pogatetz.

What is haunting you?
