for Twiglet #224

The Turn

Back in those days
when darkness
filled my head
like an anchor,

and memories
clung in strips
like demons’ hair,
back in those days

when calendars
and clocks mattered,
I never noticed
the moon’s

rising head, turn
and smile at me.

  1. After my second jab yesterday, I fully appreciate the phrase ‘darkness filled my head like an anchor ‘. Thank goodness brie the rising moon!

      1. My husband has just booked an Airbnb on the Isle of Wight for five days in September. I’ll see my sister for the first time more than two years!
