Asylum #tanka

Let those who hunger

dig roots in this fertile soil.

Watch them grow firm trunks.

Selfish souls will be humbled;

when blossom drops, fruit ensues.

          Laura’s doing great – she came home this morning, but has to go back tomorrow. She only lives a couple of hours away. It’s lovely to see her, but I’d rather go to in Bristol than have her return to her old stomping ground.
