Where were you at the time of the turning of the kotukutuku leaf, in the season when the continuous sound of the long-tailed cuckoo’s voice was heard?

Why did you not respond to the call to labour, in the spring of the year—digging time?

OCTOBER 4. A good year is determined by its spring.

jan-09-009

The Spring is A Cat
On a cat’s fur soft as pollen,
The mild Spring’s fragrance lingers.
In a cat’s eyes round as golden bells,
The mad Spring’s flame glows.
On a cat’s gently closed lips,
The soft Spring’s drowsiness lies.
On a cat’s sharp whiskers,
The green Spring’s life dance.
14th century Korean Poem

OCTOBER 1 2011: "Travel east or travel west, one’s own home is still the best." (Dutch).

Curiosities in proverbs;

DSC03564 (2)

And jolly Spring, with love and laughter gay
Full fountaining, lets loose her tide of bees
Upon the waking ember-flame of bloom
New kindled in the honey-scented trees.

The old, old man forsakes the chimney-hole,
Where erst he warmed his bones and lazy blood,
And, clasping Molly to his wheezing breast,
Triumphant floats, cock-whoop, upon the flood.

Hugh McCrae.

SEPTEMBER 30 2011: Better a little furniture than an empty house. Danish Proverb

p9270015

Extract from The Table of Longing

The table of longing was the sound of

all furniture ever moved. A distant sea

in the ear of a grand piano.

It was a tree uprooted
and black soil stirred. A car moaning
at the foot of a hill.
