Eclipses and Cuckoos


Five Dark One Light Stone 14 May 2015(Evidently) I’ve been silent. No, silence is a smooth lake.  I’ve been a *glaire of white noise. Oh, eclipses. I didn’t know about their aftershocks which like depth charges, sound silently under water. (I know, it’s not possible to sound in silence – but allow me this one oxymoron). Okay, so I saw the sound (oxymoron 2). It was of feathers lying  on an ocean floor, then disturbed by a black moon plunging like a stone from the upper regions.

Eclipses – detonations – black moons that were just too much like eggs, five eggs,
in a nest, five dark eggs ringing a sixth – big pale  and Stones Sliced 15 May 2015foreign. A cuckoo’s egg.

But I saw in the end that they were only stones. And I found these others – nine black stones split clean in half. And inside, each a wonderful universe of uniqueness.

And they gave me a wonderful idea. It took my breath away. I haven’t had my breath taken away in such a while I thought doomed to eternal breathfulness.

So the cuckoo is hatched.  Well, it is May now, when you hear the cuckoo call.

  1. Hey! Hi! Been ‘off air’ as well for more than a month I think. (I tried posting a comment before but it doesn’t show so I’m trying again.) The white noise this side was deafening!

  2. Hey, hi! In fact only reconnected to the internet yesterday since about a month and maybe a bit ago. Been rather abysmal but surfaced – don’t know yet if well enough. Love stones.

      It seems we have both been in watery realms. Who knows? We may have swum past each other in the murky depths. I sincerely and wholeheartedly hope that your recovery accelerates to warp speed 10. As stones are also eggs, it seems, we can both look forward to a fertile period. 🙂
