one hour

“I have found that sitting in a place where you have never sat before can be inspiring―I wrote my very best poem while sitting on the hen-house.

“How much one can learn in an hour?”

“Perhaps watching someone you love suffer can teach you even more than suffering yourself can.”

-Dodie Smith, I Capture the Castle.

note: I just finished reading I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith. First published in 1948. A love story. Meta-writing.Very good read. Enjoyable.

Laughter

Why does beauty sometimes make us
feel sad and unselfishness
looks so bewildering?

We live in interpretive world
walking a path of expectations
strewn with attainments and praises.

Our efforts carry promises
measured movement forward
gentle steps that will not frighten a cat.

Share your laughter with the world
audaciously unfold your mirth
cathartic and contagious.
