January, snow, Tuesday
Another winter storm. Nasty drive to work. The days I dread in July. Speaking of July, I miss it. 39 days until we go to Florida, where it is always July.
The spartan-ness of winter -- makes me think of the classical haiku poets. Check this site out: Very cool. This is the kind of stuff that makes winter bearable:
Wondering if it’s a winter shower,
I wake in my bed
And hear them:
The leaves that
Couldn’t withstand the storm.
- Saigyo

Fields we saw
Blooming with
So many different flowers,
Frost-withered now
To a single hue.
- Saigyo
