Analect 2.669x

3 March 2010. Gray, with touch of blue. Sheets of water on downhill streets, last night's rain...

Winter, somehwere near Rybinsk. A town on the Volga, once a fishing village in the province of Yaroslav. Coat of arms--a standing bear, halberd on shoulder. Below, mirrored steps extend into river, where a pair of fish set face to face--sturgeon and sterlet--recall that past.

Mother and child on a frozen road, car trouble, heavy coats. Distant trees hover in winter fog. A small figure, opposite (za mashynoj) sets off on path.

Songs unwritten, songs not yet sung...
