Worth the wait

Nothing lasts forever. Not even torrential Lakeland rain. And things postponed can turn out later to be even lovelier than originally anticipated.

Two reminders then – both from my late maternal grandmother:

i) patience is a virtue, and ii) when you’re in a garden, stand back and take in the wide view, but don’t leave it until you’ve also got up close to detail …

Pianist in the dark

The music is not in the keys
it has never been seen
the notes set out to find
each other
listening for their way
when they move they are the music
they have always been
waiting for
the leaves stirring in the night air
as it changes around them
the rain arrives in a slow minor
the keys sing to themselves in their dream of dancing
they make their own music
they make it again
