Wellness

Outside our world of bed and softness
another world exists that we don’t care for now,
for now we’re good and have the curtains closed,
we wish for shutters to keep out the sound
of traffic too. The papers probably
are full of war’s destruction. We think
we have to solve it in our minds, but don’t know
how. For now we seem to be quite safe, just
you and me, and silence hiding in the corner.
Already something’s falling on the mat downstairs,
but we ignore. Soon phones will ring.
Let’s close our eyes, pretend that all is well.
A magpie laughs above our heads, and probably is shitting.

  1. I like the house and neighborhood — even the magpie — are conspiring to upend your peace:-)

  2. It a good feeling being able to block everything out; love is a powerful thing 😊 L&H xx

  3. Bird shit is good luck I hear 😉

    • It is very warm! I once got a load on my head, smelled like fish and it was not very pleasant 🙂

  4. Two worlds within one world …
    ‘The papers probably
    are full of war’s destruction. We think
    we have to solve it in our minds, but don’t know
    how.’
    Made me think of a quote I saw on FB just yesterday:
    “One cannot be deeply responsive to the world without being saddened very often.”
    ― Erich Fromm
