Outside my window: blue sky, new green.

Promise and potential

A future of fecundity.

Inside my heart: fog, ice

You are gone

The planet is too joyful

for such a day.



NaPoWriMo Day 26.
The prompt today was for a humorous parody, but as I received the news of the death of another dear person in my life this weekend, humour is not on my mind. 4 great losses in 10 months. What a wearisome year this has been.

    Can I get an “empathy” option instead of “liking” the post? Thank you for speaking your truth in shadow (and beautifully so).

    My parody is not humorous either. As I’m feeling miserable from shot #2. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

  3. mpmckibbon Says:

    This year has been rough. We lost two dear friends too. You have my sincere sympathy for the passing of your friend.

  4. Oh I’m sad to read of your loss … go gently ♥️
