Delft blue

Delft blue

the colour of my mother


a family angry dance

I do

without her

tapping into

teenage rage

and drunken tirades

a welter of

excessive expression


and obsession

that may have nothing to do

with my mother

but the calm opulence

of delft blue




  1. So good Claire – delft is a great word – suggests “deft” and “felt” and has that awkward extra half syllable so you can’t skip past it despite it’s brevity – and its opulence.

  2. Your photo and title caught my eye as Amsterdam is one of my favorite places to visit. Sadly I won’t make it there this year. Also liked the new photo of you. Very nice change.

      1. It looks very nice! I might have to resort to that myself as my regular scheduled haircut that I missed was today.

  3. I really like your blog. A pleasure to come stroll on your pages. A great discovery and a very interesting blog. I will come back to visit you. Do not hesitate to visit my universe. See you soon.
