Robin’s melody bait
for this weary soul –

I hear promise
but nature is fickle

Winter renews onslaught
mocks any hope –

Solution to melancholy
once again delayed.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. An amazing photo … Oh, to have a feathered body! Perhaps as we all practice patience with weather and pandemics we could follow this guy’s model … fluff and tuck into ourselves … let uncontrollable forces do their thing … we can lift our heads up out of melancholy later.
