At certain times of year, we just can’t wait for the light to show up and flood our homes and rooms. Time to come out of the cave!
Sole guide and friend when I am
lost on country lanes. It’s night
and the loss is sometimes straightforward,
the strands of complication get plaited in
colouring warmth in where none was scheduled.
I imagine torches on scenes of small disasters.
Someone we love is always the shape of the missing
the gap unfilled
a careful step on the cracks in the pavement –
it never hurt anyone
to be doubly sure but
who’s to say superstition hasn’t cursed the world?
There can’t be one heart for hatred
and one for love. We only have one…
and it stains easily.
One of the downsides of winter above the 45th latitude North is that it gets dark so quickly! Plus all the fog and cloud which render the sun invisible for days on end. So here are some houses designed to let in as much light as possible.
I am tempted to go and stay in this last one… See you in Oslo!
