i.m.

I have been away from the blog and other things for a while.

My mother died on 9 August and finally we said goodbye today at a small family and friends gathering.


dark hides nothing
travelled all these years

winged leaf, stone
life to ground

breath the material
returned light


Norah 1918-2007
