Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

A Miserable Day

on October 27, 2021

Gray silence abides
Deep thickness smothers my soul
Heart longs for the light

    And here comes November, the dreariest, in my opinion.
    Sending you light, Ina!

    Touched by this, I wish I could send you some of the evening light from our hills, works for me every time! Good wishes, Ina.

  4. You have put into words what many feel in these gray days. The sunshine we find is that much more precious

  5. You’ve made beautiful poetry out of dullness Ina, wishing you lots of golden autumn light.

    This is a wonderful poem ~ made even more wonderful for me because after a week of dreary weather, I was able to get out in sunshine and hike in the woods 🙂 Still a little too cool given a choice of temperature, but I couldn’t argue with the sunshine. Wishing you some sunny days ahead, Ina. Wishing you well ~

      Dalo, I’m happy you had your hike in the sun. Sunshine is pouring into my room as I write. Wonderful difference. Thanks for all your responses to my posts. They are rekindling my love of writing and gratitude toward Word Press who makes this possible. ❤

  7. Hope you have lots of light

  8. This is the perfect piece for our time. Life in the time of covid is pretty grim, even if we are vaccinated. I send you best wishes for sunny blue skies.
