Day 26: Inside out


THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Willow” by Anna Akhmatova: nursery, silver, unrest, skies, voice, willow, stump, lost, burdock, tree, beneath, brother

Inside out
From nursery
Lost voice with my brother
Hiding behind him like shadow
Beneath that I’m strong as a willow
My stump could weather the storm like burdock
There’s always a silver lining
Blue skies, no unrest
Tall as a tree

  1. Yes, the moment I return to the OctPo posts my first go-to is “I wonder what ladyleemanila has out?” I’m reading this with a very broad smile in my face. Love the shape of it. Love the feel of it. Love it. Period.
