this morning on the roof of my house i found a new nook.

a place where everything was new!
the perforated parapet streaking across in splashes of light and shadow to the right,
the flowing silhouette of a slanting palm balancing the frame to the left,
birds flying their different ways across the sky...

and i found a totally new answer to an old riddle!

thank you, madam.
welcome sorcerer!
and subsequently, i came down the steps and found everything new, as though someone had waved a magic wand.
the wooden table at the farther end of the hall was presiding over a hush-hush meeting and i sat on the floor in between two chairs and three bookshelves.
"now, where were we," asked the table, after a pause to let me settle down. nobody could remember where they were or who was speaking last.
so we smiled at one another and sat there comfortable, they trying to remember and i waiting for them to get to it.
(my wife is still away with our daughter and so there was no one home to get curious about the goings on.)
