Day 11...

... of the Writing Challenge.

Satya's prompt today is to write about 'an object that is showing signs of age and impermanence', and she quotes Robert Bly:

It is not our job to remain whole.
We come to lose our leaves
Like the trees, and be born again,
Drawing up from the great roots.

Paper-thin skin, protruding veins,
Where's that young, spring leaf
Of a girl?


  1. beautiful words Claire! and I liked the photos in the previous post too!

    1. Thank you - rather wabi-sabi, I thought :)
      And yes, there are some great silhouettes in the previous post!


Thank you for taking the time to comment - I really appreciate it!
It's good to know I'm not alone :)
