none of them are

About the Poet
DS Maolalai recently returned to Ireland after four years away, now spending his days working maintenance dispatch for a bank and his nights looking out the window and wishing he had a view. His first collection, Love is Breaking Plates in the Garden, was published in 2016 by the Encircle Press. He has twice been nominated for the Pushcart Prize.
Painting: Rembrandt – Hendrickje Sleeping
I really like this–the tone seems to fit the rainy day here. Love that Rembrandt, too.
A very poignant piece for s rainy day. Wondering now about her, what her story might be. Wondering what they are going through. Beautifully done. ☺
Wonderful imagery. I do hope there’s a happy ending.
A Lazy day with a special one sounds promising.
This feels comfortable. Lovely imagery!
A beautiful poem to fill our hearts with serenity
