Night and love

A mixed bag of forecasts today, a bit cynical, but in the end, full of hope.



I see myself,screen-shot-2017-02-18-at-15-31-04

a green fool

in need of peace and laughter.

Wake up, universe,

this slow dance is over;

the dark is coming.


Not cry,screen-shot-2017-02-18-at-15-44-26

never let dreams sleep,

no storming away.

Soar with the wind,

love life like death,

swim a misty sea,

fly a rainy sky,




we thought the night

was lonely.

The moon’s song

murmurs to the rose,

peace in root,

harmony in quiet,

live in light,

make love from all things.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

      1. I wonder sometimes, if I don’t happen to see the lone magpie, will I still have bad luck? If I don’t consult the oracle, will the future come as more of a surprise or will I be forewarned and avoid the dangers? Who knows.

      1. I think it REALLY worked. That is not to say that your usual ‘voice’ is in any way inferior (by no means) but it is exceptional to change so much and still be on top. Loved this.
