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

collecting moisture

deep autumn:

father’s boroque music

son’s rock music

a morning-glory

blue to its throat

I refill my fountain pen
