Haibun



                                                              ALONE

Coffee in the café, her daily routine.  Many of the same faces.  Busy people.  Lonely people.  Happy. Sad.  She was one of many.  Who cared?  Did she?  Not enough.  Would she die like this, uncaring and uncared for?

                                                        full winter moon
                                                        in the wind
                                                       shadows touch

Love it! Love it! Love it! There, that covers everything.

No, life will go on, but on a different path that probably will surprise you.
The very best to you this holiday season.

Thank you Magyar and Sandy. I shall be with my children and grandchildren for the holidays, and on Dec 29 I move to my new place which is closer to family. Lots of changes, and I am looking ahead.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays.
