The land before me is white and very cold as I walk down my country lane. Smells of wood burning and Pinon suffuses. A blurred world that hides the potential of the changing seasons. I need the exercise so I move.
Above my hatted head, I catch sight of a beautiful falcon lazily spiraling. Light reflects in the tiny snow crystals collected on every surface I see. There is a white rabbit barely noticeable because of his color that matches the snow. Look! There is a burst of color. A flowering quince blanketed with Winter’s powder.
A promise of Spring.
cold and snow
the Falcon soars for warmth
a pink quince flowers

Kanzensakura lends is beautiful photo to the pub gatherers this week for haibun Monday.
“So today, I would like you all to write a haibun based on the photograph. Please use the compact haibun form for this: one or two tight paragraphs with one haiku, in fewer than 200 words. The photograph will be used in your post. I ask only that you make note of the caption below the photograph and also add “Used by permission”.”
Please go explore the wonderful writers at the pub!
