2107



clouds emptied of rain -
the radiance of Poui
in its aftermath



coolness of the night -
to quiet sliver of light
upward gaze to moon

Its Ascension Sunday, and yesterday, Saturday, we had a nice cooling shower of rain during the day; a preface of our rainy Season which should start in June.

Springtime in Edo,
Not a day passes without
A temple bell sold.

pounding of hammer and nails
and old church bell is silent

waving candlelight into the night

nights of Divali lightings
the flicker of deya flames

slow pace of Sundays -
an ant crawls between newsprint
lost to many worlds

The rains are quietly slipping in mostly by night drizzles; not enough for cool days, just enough to tease.

layers of heat waves
the sip of bird songs
after earth tremors

© gillena cox 2017

There was an earthquake on Wednesday morning, the not so scary part of it is that I only knew about it, when I heard it on the news, later in the morning, Phew! slept through that one

✿ܓ


[Notice there is a recurred motif today the glass of straws from a few weeks back. Started with torn bits of glued newsprint to cardboard, added some buttons, and that cut out from a few weeks ago. Little line drawn birds, penciled in. Think i'll move out of newsprint pieces though. Next week starting some more water colour pieces. ✿ܓIn case you are wondering. I search for music after i finish my pieces ]
