Monday, a lot to wash,a lot to write, and a lot to cook!
With each rain, my garden becomes a shallow lake; I wonder if goldfish could also fall from the heaven?
a cicada, French alphabet, rain drops dripping, a click of my mouse, my heart beat
Unanswered phone calls
the greenhouse walls
father’s boroque music
son’s rock music
blue to its throat
I refill my fountain pen
