rescued from the middenheap

     How beautiful,
After the autumn storm,
     The red pepper.

Music and News

I've finally posted the piece of music by my second born (they identify as they/them now). Sorry I never did post their original piece but you can find their cover here (with a piece of surprising news about Blue)! Gosh darn I love their version of the song, "If I Died On You" (originally by Karl Blau). The hair stands on my arms.

rowan berries burning, even in winter


With a red brush
The mountain-ash burned:
The leaves were falling
And I was born.

From a short three verse poem by Marina Tsvetaeva. (I would like to find a published English translation of this rowan berry poem. If anyone has a source, I'd be grateful to be made aware.)
