Writer’s Quote Wednesday

“When it’s in a book I don’t think it’ll hurt any more …exist any more. One of the things writing does is wipe things out. Replace them”.

Marguerite Duras

“Marguerite Donnadieu, known as Marguerite Duras (French: [maʁ.ɡə.ʁit dy.ʁas]; 4 April 1914 – 3 March 1996), was a French novelist, playwright, scriptwriter, essayist and experimental filmmaker. She is best known for writing the 1959 film Hiroshima mon amour, which earned her a nomination for Best Original Screenplay at the Academy Awards.” (wiki)

 

This one doesn’t have to do with writing but a keen observation nonetheless. And it made me laugh :). That was probably a weird reaction, but that’s what happened 🙂

The harvest moon–
rabbits go scampering

n from the dark
and out into the dark–
that’s a cat in love
