  1. You could be writing about north-west England, Ashi. It’s the same here.

    It snowed in Romania for Japan, Ashi. It snowed all night. It is wonderful here 🙂

      So it seems. Enjoy! 🙂
      (By the way, here is what I wrote for you in response to your “The night…” but couldn’t post it on your page. If you care to read it, it’s here:

      The night is for the bulb of lilies
      Confined alone in the darkness
      Only thought goes on
      Fears, the more frightening the better
      Loneliness, more helpless the better
      Sadness, deeper the better
      For all are for the bulb to grow

      The greater light to rule the day
      That all living things grow and thrive
      The night was given the lesser light
      That the things be kept from death but suffer

      The suffering in tears is most loved
      Unnoticed but smile on the fight and struggle
      Trembling inside the bulb from fears
      For the bulb does not know, it is yet to know

      Into the day of the greater light
      The bulb will grow and bloom into flowers with fragrance
      For the world in the bright light
      Then it will know it all)

    Beautiful poetry Ashi. We are in the middle of El Nino and already tornadoes are developing in the rains storms, damaging winds and lots of rain. Climate change.

    • AshiAkira says:

      Thank you, Heart! El Nino is affecting us here, too. About the climate change, the world conference in Paris last month proved that all the countries are at least concerned. I’m concerned too. But I can’t live without a car or the use of electricity. Just breathing may be contributing to the warming. I guess I can only hope the end of the world will come later rather sooner… 🙂
