midwinter night
an overturned trash can
back and forth
[February 4 is "midwinter day"--exactly halfway between the winter solstice and the vernal equinox. I'm grateful to mankh, poet and friend, for pointing this out.]

Nice Bill. This makes me think how it has been so cold and then it rains. It is like Spring and Winter fighting. Who will win?

Thank you.


Will it ever stop snowing?

As I said to a friend at another site, any ku I write about snow these days are from memory. We've had barely a shovelful all winter in New York City. But I know it's being dumped in great quantities on other places.

Thanks for the visit, T.

Thanks, Juliet. Another reader said this made him feel uncomfortable and cosy at the same time.
