A walk in snow – haibun – March 30, 2016

northagain 073

Down and down into the snow … or was it snow?  Could it be cotton-wool, maybe something else. I really couldn’t be sure, the stuff wasn’t viscus … nor particularly sticky.  On the other hand, it wasn’t really cold either.

Down and down I walked into the odd pinkish light with its eerie accents of green.  The wind moaned just at the end of the stairs.   I could see footprints … both of  human and of strange animals.  I heard a crunching and the sound of the trees whooshing … in the distance, a harp and violin played and a voice hummed.  Much to my surprise, the voice was my own.

The world seemed to shake and shimmer and yet, there was no other sign of life outside of the trees.

A bell began to ring sharply, penetrating my mind like a sharp spike so I closed my eyes tightly but couldn’t close my ears.

Birds sang and I felt a cosy warmth all around me.

I opened my eyes to the sunshine pouring through my window.  Spring had returned.

a winter landscape
hidden is the call of spring
my eyes open

About Bastet

I love to read...I like to write...I've travelled the world and seen the sites. I'm past my prime and feel so young, especially when near the young. I'm writing this blog, to remember, to think and to share...with the hopes that someone else will make a comment that will stimulate new thoughts and pathways. Actually, I'm a gabber, so the logical extension of gabbing is blogging! ;-)
