a distant sound

i think i heard a night jar

up the valley here.

it was a quiet night except

for that.

we have the window open now.

very tall, russian

so the bear has become a companion.

of sorts in times of sress

and needlessness.

i call him darling sometimes,

not often.

some days he stays in bed ,

not often.

some people are witnesses, study

the evidence.

i prefer the bear.

Posted on May 21, 2016

a retail outlet we likes to look
smart and proper mostly. wore
boots as it was cooler. i thought

it was blue, the girl said purple.

we all see things different.

( technical stuff. photo taken with phone while wearing pjs lit with a torch in the front spare room, it is a gloomy morning)

run of the mill

some days are soothing, having made a new pattern.

yet if he brings boxes we have heavy work, not minded

so much.

all those years ago when i followed instructions

never thought that i can change them.

make my own.

the phone

one of the bears is my ancestor,

illogical i know. he has come to

live here quietly respecting

all that is happening now.

what is that?, he said in itallics.

it is my phone.

how do you explain that?

same as i explained it to him,

i can talk to people who are not here.

ah, the way you talk to me?

yes.

a challenge every day

it is quite an obscure book,
the mouse and his child
by russell hoban, some
of you will have heard
of it.

pictures by lillian hoban,
perhaps a relative.

the photo is of r.k.narayan,
breaks a rule
so this may be deleted.

this is an installation, a
love of old things.

some members will be sad
today, and we shall
empathise.
