a toast

a toast
to the departing year –
snow turns to rain . . .

A slightly different version of this was entered in the Shiki Monthly Kukai, December 2012

And here's a toast to all of us. Let's make it a good one!

A nice post, Bill. I prefer rain much friendlier than snow. Happy New Year!...

Thanks, Geraldine. BC is one of my favorite places. I have friends there.

Yes, Frank, and the ellipsis suggests that the process goes beyond rain, even though "into each life some rain [and occasional snow] must fall." Thanks.

Thank you, my friends, and the best to you. After a hectic few weeks, things are beginning to slow down.

Thanks, Rita. As you know, this one has existed in several versions. I chose the one that seemed most suitable for an end-of-year ku at the blog.
