heartsick . . .
the foxgloves of my childhood
out of reach

sheep-like stones
herded by farmhouse shadows

All 3 of these pack a whallop.

Love the flower pic. The graveyard is intense.

Liked all of these very much. And the photos. Kirsten's echoed my feelings about my parents home, long sold, and dear to me. Thanks, poets.

Bart ... thanks, this really did come together well ... interestingly, I do them chronologically, so it's a bit like tapping into something other -

Of course, I use the Issa poem as a sort of bridge ...

Issa's Untidy Hut said...

Charles, yes, indeed, about the graveyard.
