From the Icebox inbox 3

Deep in the freezer –

Peas, dreaming of those sunny days

Before the rains set in ……………………. Yoko Nagane, Kyoto

…………………………..Fifty-somethings kiss

…………………………..On Eastbourne railway station –

…………………………..Seagull looking on. ……………Kamome, Hastings, U.K.

Ascending the stairs,

Still carrying Mt. Omine

In my weary legs. …………………………..Ted Taylor, Kyoto

  1. In Japan, peas ripen in their pods and come onto the market in late spring. Two place names warrant comment. Eastbourne is a South Coast resort popular amongst retirees (although the kissers are probably still working). Mt. Omine is a pilgrims’ mountain sacred to the Shugendo sect of mountain Buddhism. It opens to male climbers only from about May.

  2. Thanks for the post Tito. Last name is Taylor, by the by.

  3. I love trying on the feeling of carrying a mountain in one’s legs– a day or two after the climb?

    Thanks for the image!
