Shadorma 336

of toothbrushes chat
about love
and money
The pink-tiled bathroom echoes
with their bright laughter

Shadorma 337

Physics tale.
You may have read it.
Stray atom
reaches out
for a unifying word.
The universe forms.

Shadorma 338

The sun moves:
your brassy escort
over and
beyond. The empire gossips.
A gnome breathes out leaves.

  1. I really like these, particularly the toothbrushes chatting and laughing in the bathroom, and the universe forming from words. My parents’ bathroom in the house I lived in as a child had a pink -tiled bathroom. And the words–of course!

    • Thank you. We had a pink bathroom here originally but it was in poor repair and really really ugly so some years ago we renovated our way into a different look, which I don’t regret in our everyday living…but – the pink bathroom was cheerful. Which a lot of bathrooms cannot be said to be.

      • Perhaps pink bathrooms were a thing at one point. I don’t remember thinking my parents’ bathroom was particularly cheerful. The main bathroom was yellow and seemed more cheerful, I think.

        • Pink (and yellow, blue, mint green, etc.) – very popular in the 1940’s -1960’s. Before that white was most common because it signified cleanliness and hygiene. Now, look at what bathrooms have become, materials and size-wise, and wow, that tells you something about how things have changed.
