a few for the season

1
the year's last morning
a jet climbs
a fading contrail
2
last day of the year
a hawk finds a path
in the empty sky
3
new year's morning
facing the question
in the mirror
4
no shadows
on the unbroken snow
cloudy new year's
Let's make this year a good one.

Bill,

This is a fine set for the occasion. I especially like the first ku's 'fading contrail' - poignant.

Ah, that 'question in the mirror' - how familiar, how unanswerable.

Well done. Happy new year!

bw,
Denis
