Window Haiku

Its been a long week here in the Chesham Vale. Temperatures rose and fell again leaving the end of the week cold and wet. For some time now I’ve been posting on a local Facebook group to try and raise people’s awareness of each. Spreading notions of happiness and positivity.

Truth and Symmetry

How can it be that when we speak
A difference clearly I can see,
And yet when I look in your eyes
there are mine in perfect symmetry?

Aside

The Cabinet of Rodin.

This story is based on two dreams. One where I was trying to find the 6th vark and the other while exploring the Cabinet of Rodin. I have worked the two together into a theme that has been revolving in my head the last week. A little Edgar Allen Poe for those who know him. Feedback welcome.
