the first footer at my house

This first day of the new year has been beautiful, so beautiful. A cold wind brought rain. I opened my door to it and sat drinking tea, listening quietly for all the poetry of the far away wild.




The old year went swiftly out my door last night, looking like a ghost goddess, trailing white dreams, white memories; blurring fast into the midnight. She left behind a pile of aches and murmurings I wanted to sit amongst, sorting them into silence, but the front door was opening, so I left them for the while. I went to be with the future.

And the future brought me the rain that I love.

ps, I have a new url ... this weblog redirects automatically, but I haven't figured out how to redirect every post yet. So in the meanwhile, here is the address. This old diary will remain online, however all the posts and pages are also at the new space.

    1. Lol, I will never find happiness with my blog layout, I think. I don't like this one, but I like the header surrounded by black, and its raining here, so ... I do wish I was more stable. :-)

  4. I have been considering, that the way you use words, undoes the worlds way of perceiving and offers a new way, a way for each of our hearts to show us anew.

  5. it's nice to start the new year quietly. it must have quite a peaceful day. it's almost the same for me though no tea or rain.

    I see another new blog template, I like this one and all the other ones as well. I think anything you change to always looks calm and peaceful and lovely.

    happy new year!

    1. Thank you. Actually, a whole new template and url, but for some reason the forward-redirect only works for the main url, not the post titles. Oh well, I might try to fix it later. :-)
