Jola Naibi

Writer and amateur photog. I seek to inspire and inform with the words I write and share and the photos I take. I have written a book of short stories: Terra Cotta Beauty, and I am working on a lot more. Reading and writing fuel my energy. In reading, I explore this vast and diverse world, in writing, I employ my over-active imagination and address the 'what-if' questions that life often throws at us.

September is when the countdown to the end of the year begins, when all of the months end with ‘ber’. A time of deep reflection for many as we contemplate the end of the year and look back and wonder where all the time went in the preceding months.

One September morning, 
I went to a place beyond the dawn 
A source of sweetness 
that flows and is never less. 
I have been shown a beauty 
that would confuse both worlds
