week 624 ~ the river of time

with 2 comments

the river of time
flows slowly at first
its reason has rhyme
the river of time
takes everything mine
what’s best and what’s worst
the river of time
flows slowly at first

Getting things together for my friend Antonia’s memorial service on Sunday. Pictured is her unfinished quilt top of the T-shirts she made annually for my summer school. Nostalgia for times and people past.

And finally, overnight, a drenching, glorious rain.

A day of out-and-up errands, writing up a to-do list, picking things up at stores, sending out mail, gassing up the car, cleaning up, cooking up. Almost like normal, except for the mask, yep– almost…

Corn on the cob and football today, as we transition from summer to autumn.

A lovely day for a walk to the farmers’ market– my weekly destination for fruit, veggies, fish, bread, and for a treat, croissants and ginger biscuits for the day’s breakfast. In these days of shelter-in-place, I’m so lucky to have this bounty of deliciousness a few blocks away, with all pandemic safety guidelines observed. For another month anyway.

A day spent close to home, editing my recent compositions, chatting with the grandboys, laughing, appreciating their new Pokemon cards, proudly shown. Avoiding the news for the nonce– assuming none of it will be welcome or cheering.

Musicians in the backyard for a socially distanced rehearsal and planning session for the memorial service of a lost friend. We will gather with others near and far in just over a week to bear witness to her life and her passing. Because of the pandemic, it has been months since I’ve seen these people who usually populate my life, as our regular practices have been discontinued until some fine day when it is safe to meet all together again. It’s so good to play with them, to hear our notes combine, floating aloft on the passing breeze.

week 623 ~ let me start at the beginning

with 2 comments

let me start at the beginning
again with a calm demeanor
the future expansive leaner
younger with a chance of winning
still in the 3rd or 4th inning
stars in my eyes heart on my sleeve
young enough to hope to believe
that time is truly on my side
lust unmasked with nothing to hide
and nothing precious lost to grieve

A windy beach day bundled up against autumn’s chill, but glad of the peace gleaned from distant vistas and the cheerful company of friends.
