daily tanka — June 9

during our holiday

          I lost my iphone 

after taking

         that shot of us                     together

among the ruins

Image: Pompeii 13 April 2019, 1.18pm. I was going to use something more lyrical as a photo but this snap from my lost iphone makes me smile.

And for music today, here’s some northern hemisphere birds accompanying ‘quirky’ London-based multi-instrumentalist Cosmo Sheldrake with Wake Up Calls (Youtubers) (if you have a cat, probably put them in the other room while this is playing).

A daily tanka – 9 May

For music this morning, jazz from 1960 with pianist Bill Evans and guitarist Jim Hall in Undercurrent. And here’s the dream-like cover photo from American photographer Toni Frissell,  “Weeki Wachee Spring, Florida”.
