Haiku

tree to bedrock

 

tree to bedrock
as water around stone
the will to life

Just sitting, resting
creative inaction
healing psyche too

Subverting the myth
Psyche husks linseed harvest
for her own use

Cigs, tea and a book –
we’re early to bed,
cat snuggles up

    • It’s really true about going on a walk by oneself. One walks or sits or wades through water entirely on impulse without having to consider anybody else. I always return refreshed and feel as if I’ve been ‘fed’.

I make art, I read a lot and I'm now trying to write as well. Otherwise I belong to a cat by the name of Charlie that drives me nuts sometimes and other times makes me melt with love for her.
