This is my third instalment of small stones for the #aros project. (To see first two parts and to read an explanation of what this project is about, please see my Jan 7th and Jan 15th posts ). I hope you enjoy them.
Pressure-washed by gale-driven rain, earth softens. Starlings and rock doves jab the grass. Snowdrop bulbs peep through.

A rare, deep sleep, a necessary dream, gave comfort and revelation.
Saturday morning, a second cup of tea, a long phone blether with my darling daughter, then a pause of quiet contemplation. Time to breathe.
