FAMILIAR

We’ll know as children again all that we are
destined to know, that the water is cold
and deep, and the sun penetrates only so far”
~ Jim Harrison from Death Again

beyond the sun
and the cold of the deep
another warmth beckons
and through the water
a path opens
that even a child can find
so we discover
the unknown is no longer
a mystery
but familiar as the womb
of a mother

…for day 18 of Jilly’s 28 days of unreason

WASHED CLEAN

We’ve had a stormy night, thunder and lightning, not to mention torrential rain.  So exciting to just lie cosy in bed and listen to the rain drumming on the iron roof, and watch the lightning flickering against the clouds.  For a while this morning we have had a little sunlight, which always looks doubly bright after the darkness…
