A headful of Virginia Woolf and one does then think of Ingrid Jonker too. Both of whom walked into the water. I wear my mother’s jersey. The pockets are convenient. Getting back into bed on account of the cold fishing out the stone I put in it to work on. Intake of breath and I wasn’t meditating. Taking a moment then bending down to work. There’s some rough bits; need smoothing over.

a cold season’s dawn

walking, a pidgeon swoops by

in delight of flight

    Sometimes when working with focus… I believe that is a type of meditation too.

    Beautiful. I love the dawns, hope on the horizons. Cheers. 🙂

  3. I think you wrote a good one. A really good one. Just saying.

    Petru, my friend, tell me you aren’t depressed…

    • Nan, my friend, tell me if I wrote a good one or not please? Of course I’m depressed. Aren’t you? Isn’t everyone most of the time?

    • Nan, I was surely somewhat abrupt. It’s just that it can be seen from a different angle besides a personal depression. It can easily be read as a brief mourning for two excellent women, who through trials and tribulations because of their femininity, had to give up on their lives.
