Sitting under a tree in Museum Gardens writing poetry with @InTheLighthouse.
The history you’ve seen
Permanent spectator. Mute
Yet sharing wisdom
Weary burdens have
Twisted and scarred and yet fresh
Leaves show strength and fight
Arms reach out, tracing
Paths explored in the fruitful
Quest for light and life.
Overhead on a walk:
“You keep chasing me but you’ll never catch me”
“Why do you do it?”
“Because it’s fun”
When do you last do something just because it’s fun?
Watching a video message from a friend on the other side of the world and sharing cups of tea with friends who feel like family.
Noticing words. The difference between “put to bed” and “put to sleep” (an important difference if you happen to be talking about people’s children…). Words which capture something very specific. Words to use more often. Words to inspire.
