Stillness, Supper and A Poem

22 Feb

The Penryn River was so still this morning while we were singing.

Supper this evening is a rainbow of roasted vegetables which will be served on a bed of glossy green lentils.

A  lovely and quite sad poem came my way the other day, ‘After a While’ by Veronica A Shoffstall, about whom I can find out very little. If any reader can help, please comment below. I think she must’ve had a hard life with too many goodbyes though she ends up strong and resolute.

      Thank you. In fact it’s a river that is unusually still and quite glorious.🙂

    The river is exquisite… as for the poem,, it went straight to my heart and my gut … so moving and triumphant … I loved her – whoever she is…
