the mail

 a wonderful card happened 
into my mailbox
an unexpected gift from ronnie
 india's latest 
a booklet, a project,
an invitation

india using a leaf
as a spoon
is so very india
and a wee bit faerie
 a strong sheet of kozo
 envelopes
 a beautifully geometric bag
 dyed and woven 
the flat winter light here doesn't show
the soft, rich variations of indigo
chinami achieved.
