Silver-tongued swans

A couple more tanagas


Time ripples, softly singing,

Silver-tongued white swan winging,

On his back, my love bringing,

Silver bells, my heart ringing.


Over morning fields mist blue

Painted in the skyโ€™s bright hue

Wishes wing their way to you,

Feathered darts where wild geese flew.

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. We had an outage after a violent storm early saturday morning. Got power back quickly, but not internet. We’ve got a temporary connection now until we get a new box (is it a box in English?).

      1. Oh–I wondered where you were. I thought maybe away. Hmmm–box perhaps for electrical box, but if you mean for the Internet, we have a router for WiFi. In any case, I’m glad you have a connection. ๐Ÿ™‚

      2. Router! I think that must be it. Though if it’s just for wifi, that’s probably the tiny thing the size of a matchbox we have on loan. The thing we’re waiting to receive is more like chocolate box size. You can tell I’m really clued up on technology ๐Ÿ™‚

      3. The router we have now is definitely smaller than the one we used to have–but bigger than a matchbox. So the thing you are waiting for is for more than WiFi?
