little by little I learn
to forget you

    It is hard work to un-commit yourself. You have to prepare the way for a re-commitment. It’s the only way to authenticate your love.

    The heart has its fast beast, and its slow underlying rhythms. It won't be hurried. Snow a deceptive blanket, leaving painful things covered?

    a flink of cows
    the blue before a night
    of falling snow

    N.B. Twelve cows are called a flink

    falling snow moon
    the slowness of shadows
    caught in branches
