Shutting

I sense an anger here, Gillena,

even i often feel shutting myself from everything...only to know after a while that seeing all these around me, being in the midst gives me much peace and happiness than being alone....but then even when in the midst we create a private space for ourselves....oh i'm talking so much of me!

just a fine haiga...a moment that may come and go time and again :)

wishes,
devika

Hmmm. But you can't shut out the sounds of the crickets and other night creatures!

Instead of anger, I sense loneliness and isolation. Darkness sometimes calms me, but often increases my sense of separation. Either way, the words with the image fit well. There is beauty in the dark of night.

Whilst looking at the yellow spot it starts to move. Whilst reading the first word of the first two lines I close my eyes. This is a good haiga, Gillena.

Best wishes

If this moon is peeping my room,
I'll do the same thing ;-)
