    I felt an involuntary shudder of memories of walking in such a time and place! As always, it is a treat to stop by for your incisive, cogent haiku view of the world!

  2. I wish the leaves would follow me, but they are buried beneath the snow. Sorry to be away for so long! Hope you are well, my friend.

      Snow absorbs all the noises and makes the world so quiet. I used to love to walk at night in the snow. I was young then of course and cold air wouldn’t be a bother at all. So good to see you back. I’m fine. Hope all is well with you, too.

      • You’re right about snow being quiet! It’s amazing to wake in the morning and find a huge storm has dumped a bunch of the white stuff and we didn’t even know!
        I’m holding together. Holidays are hard without my mom- Christmas was our favorite time with her.

        I think I know exactly what you mean. I sometimes wonder why life changes as it does. We have often to follow a given course. I wish you a very merry Christmas.

      • I wish you a wonderful Christmas as well. Will it be green for you? Do you get snow?

      • AshiAkira says:

        Except the evergreens, most of the leaves have already fell off to the ground. Ours is a small mountainous island country and it seldom snows in our (Tokyo) area, but only about a couple of hundred miles away over the mountain, they get snow of yards deep. Some houses are literally buried there.

  3. I’m going to sit down and write now. Thanks. 🙂
