chance is a timeless change

if you should have me pinpoint it exactly
you were right to trust an honest eye
the eye with much light

salt air moistening brand new poem
self-portrait cheerful and grateful

moved
further back into my psyche
jumping out of the box
crazy paint chips loudly applaud
a crisp, must-see dream

the irony, debatable
upward punchy poets must move on
sky advanced to
a crack of sunlight behind curtains

    images come and go for me, never quite staying long enough; but I think of a morning long ago spent waking up in a mud hut by the lake (which was not salt of course).

      A mud hut by the lake?

        Yes. This was in South-Central Africa – Malawi. In a holiday village on Lake Malawi. Of disappointing standard but in a beautiful spot. We had thought they had food there but, oh, no! Luckily, some friends had brought enough to feed us also. I remember I was very reluctant to get up that morning – I hate it when there is a lack of basic facilities, like a bathroom! (Worst experience was shaving in cold sea water on a beach in the south of France one morning a long time ago. Gee, that was tough.) There was a toilet of sorts,I think, best not remembered, obviously.

        I lay in bed and luxuriated in not getting up and the sunlight and cool breeze coming through the window. No photos, unfortunately.

        Sunlight and a cool breeze. Love that.
