January: a haibun

This January I find myself surrendering to winter, adapting to the calls of sleep, oven casseroles, and layers of cotton, wool and polyester—layers worn and taken off with changes in damp and chill. Dreams, no resolutions, but hazy sightings of possibility accompany me under layers of comforters. They nestle within as a cat circles my lap, quelling my daily resistance.

the sun shines

and I shudder

it’s too early for spring

  1. Our see saw weather… that’s what this reminds me of. When things bloom to soon. I’m not ready for bugs yet.
    Layers, layers, layers. Brrr… it was 25 F or -3 C this morning.
    I think I need some more wool socks. 🙂
