22 February: It’s Proverbial

pencil sketch abstract of a woman's face
It's Proverbial

Time decides 
		what's short,  
		long.  When 
my mother passed, her time was a thin river.
There was no trembling. No transient sigh.
		She is a ghost 
		of a smile now. Her words 
drops of light, happy as the moon, and 
before my very eyes the windows fogged.
		Fall seven times, 
		rise up eight, she'd say,  
so we lit candles for kindness, and then lit 
another one for her memory. It's proverbial.

  1. I really like this one, Misky. I love the images. Which bits are Korean proverbs? And that artwork – so interesting. So much more abstract than I’ve seen from Midjourney. I think it’s a woman but I’m not 100% sure.


    1. Thanks. Time decides what’s long. She’s happy as a moon. Fall seven times, rise up eight.
