Unearthed Fragments – Orlando’s Finds

with 8 comments

Well, it’s been a very long while since Imogen checked back to see how Orlando non Furioso is doing with his excavations!  He has been busy, and digging in the sun has been bringing up some treasures.  Fragments are interesting, because they are and always will be parts of a whole, waiting for validation.  Fragments are also curiously beguiling for the same reason, as they make you want to contemplate the whole, which is probably what Orlando has been doing for so long, digging in the sunny yard at the Villa in the City of Ladies.  He is pleased to find remnants of a soap dish which sat atop what appears to be an antique shaving cup, with lovely gold and blue dots around the rim, and holes for the soap water to drain away.  He has found the remains of a tea set he and his grandmother used to use when he was a child, the remains of a dinner plate in a lovely soft green, a tea cup shard with a rose on it his mother had, and a plate he had as a child with a blue horse on it.  Not sure about the shard of thick glass, possibly from a very expensive window from another era, or perhaps part of a window for future looking into?

There have also been many patterns of flat decorative glass found, in fragments, looking almost like pieces of sugar toffee, or licorice, from old windows of long ago, that no longer need looking through.  They make good art, and Baba especially liked them…of course Imogen will see what else he found, once he sorts these treasures.

Time Spent with the Dame

with 9 comments

Seasons come and seasons go,

Nature’s song,

wheeling cosmically,

unrelenting,

time spent with the Dame

washes a lot,

(with her humming song),

of the past away.

To greet Imogen and Orlando,

anew,

free of travel disarray and dirt,

to occupy new places,

is surprising –

to say the least.
