The shadows are falling

However much there is to do on a Saturday, there is always time to visit the Oracle. The first one is obviously inspired by the weather. The second, more subtle, seems to be drawn from what I’m writing. I hope she’s telling me I’m on the right lines.

storm-sun bringing rain

from the lazy sky.

Forest music plays too sweet,

hot wind whispers,

to last.

into the sun,

his death cry screams,


The shadows are falling.
