                                              WINTER RETREAT                                         

In our small Swiss village winter brings a whiteness stretching to the horizon.  A slowing down as farms rest.  Days become colder, afternoon walks shorter and closer to home.  A retreat to indoor pursuits. Hobbies and reading, visits with friends.

                                                 smoky café—
                                                 at the ringing of a bell
                                                 snow on the red mat 

Frogpond, spring 2008

A very nice haibun & photo, Adelaide. In particular, I love the internal comparison of the haiku...

Thanks, Frank. Tomorrow the temp is supposed to get above freezing for a change.
