every bowl has its stone

 

marketa puts a stone   one

from a walk we had taken 

into the raku bowl on the shelf 

 

a bowl does not like to be empty   she says

her accent gives me shivers

have i fallen in love with han shan   i wonder

1st verse a gentle family snapshot. I find the 2nd scary (we can ignore the metaphysics) Really good.

It sounds deep enough to be han shan. I understand why it made you wonder :)

This piece is both simple and intricate at the same time. I'll go and have a cuppa, I'm feeling chilly😉
