It shines, it whispers

Festina Lente

In 2014 an old university friend Katrien crossed my path again. She had stopped working as a psychologist after 25 years and had started an ecological flower garden. She provided me with very special papavers. The papaver or poppy has a short life span. When in Cardiff in 2014, we saw them everywhere to remember the soldiers of WWI just 100 years before. 
In our Bed and Breakfast an anthology of Ezra Pound fell out of a bookshelve above our bed providing me with this poem of Ezra Pound: Salutation the Second
I love these lines for titles.
