tending the sunset
a change of wind turns me back –
the moon, full, rising
a bird, a swift, back
from somewhere in Africa
close by me

So it’s you who tidies away the sun so the moon can rise without any competition?
Not me, it was the wind.

A kind of softness. An expectation of feeling cleaner after. I think. For me anyway.
Yes. That the day is settled in its drawer, folded neatly.

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.
