Winter’s Gift at a Vacation’s End

haibun poem

Haibun

A layer of snow rests on the deck. Just a dusting. The reflection of tile on the storm door blends with that thin layer of snow.

Light tries to breach the banks of snow clouds that fill the sky. The same clouds that promise more snow now that teachers and students return.
