… meeting my foxy child in twilight …

a tall fox appears

in the garden’s night shadow

he stops – sits – alert

cautious from a safe distance

we eye each other

he triggers my cunning child

buried long ago

since grownups detest smartness

even hunt their kind

yet through our meshed lineage

recognition plays

in the nimbus between us

we affirm being

and our shape shifting stories

Next day I strung up my little hammock near that magic spot, with different views:                                       

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mostly, during these surreal lock down days, I sigh and groan a lot, bewildered by hilarious media stories and the never ending blame games, which, given people are bored, have gained major entertainment value – and this from my perspective of not having watched TV for years.

Keep sane my friends.

… inner voices …

She talks to me, I talk to her

We echo each other’s time

For comfort

Or we discuss patterns

That cohere – and entangle

In this wondrous web of tales

Glimpsed during twilight

She mirrors for me what was

I mirror for her what becomes

Yet in the silence between us

Flows a vibrant river

Pulsing with our true name …

 

Ashen

I was writing the above poem when this image arrived –  of the Cardo Mountains in Tarragona – the sky at sunset seen on the 5th of January 2012 by my friends, Agnieszka and Harold, from their terrace. It conveys something of that mystery between times.
