inbox 13 (Winter is the Quiet Time)

Posted in Haibun, Submissions, Winter with tags on June 11, 2010 by Tito
Winter is the quiet time, when few venture back to see me. Sometimes on Sundays, cross-country skiers happen by. Wow, you live here? What do you do for …? I shush them; listen, the jays are fighting.
Snowshoe hares make a daily pilgrimage searching for my garden, now buried deep beneath the snow. Nothing for you here, I whisper. The berries have been picked and turned to jam, which I will not share with you.
A week’s wood to split:
Felling, stacking, and burning —
Three times it warms me.
