Gogyohka-Thursday [48]

the tongue, my weapon

has cleft the deepest wounds

into my memory -

my memorial

to those I lost in action

Gogyohka-Thursday [47]

"Some things never change."

What things? Even the mountains fade

and faces wither in ever-churning time?

God alone remains the same- 

yesterday, today, and forevermore.

Gogyohka-Thursday [46]

hats and bows

burned papers and sea-glass

I unpack my souvenirs

and remember

Fond Fare Thee Well

It's been about a year since I began Salt-Rain Tidings in August, 2010. I have so enjoyed blogging- documenting my experiences and sharing my thoughts. However at this time I think it wise to give my blog a rest as I have found it difficult to live in the present when I am constantly thinking and writing up posts. These next few months will hopefully provide me opportunity to devote more time to the people around me and to work towards publishing some children's literature (a project that has long been shelved in the shadow of my blog). This isn't a good-bye, just a take-care and see-you-later. I may begin re-blogging when I transfer colleges in January- or next year- or maybe just some time "in the distant future". But at any rate-  don't forget the archives, and per request I WILL be keeping up Gogyohka-Thursdays- so do stop in and check them out.
