Mornings are grey, afternoons are sunny.
Probably an effect from temperature changes.
Dense fog at times and horn sound from invisible creatures.
The Moon is growing each day among the stars.
Breads rise well and overflow into the bottom of the oven and are delicious.

Being a drop of water in this immensity, a grain of dust on the planet and I forget to find reasons for every matter.
Just go on the dear seas.
Sentinel of faraway.
