A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
I was recently traveling by car, covering a distance of about 420 kms. It was almost a 9 hour journey through the Northern plains of the country. And it turned out to be the first day when we experienced the bitter chill of the winter, with distant fog growing ever closer and closer. The wind whipped tress were pointing to a single direction. With windows closed, there was a warmth teasing the cold out there. But when we stepped out during the rest breaks, it embraced us with a knowing touch.
out the window
the tress shaken by the wind-
fog draws nearer
sitting for long
as lights of life pass by-
my bums go sore
(okay, that is meant to be something stupid… ;))
I have no hassles with this season but for the fact that I tend to eat quite too much and also, that starting from now till the end of February, my feet and my hands are going to be freezing cold, which they are as I am writing right now. I may wear warm socks(which I have my feet “tucked in”) and gloves but the coldness wouldn’t go away.
sipping hot soup
listless eyes water, wander-
moon looks through clouds
This week, I would like you to share your experience of the season thus far, in the form of a haiku or tanka or both. Make a cup of tea, slurp, and start writing.
And those who are in the Southern hemisphere, please share something warm with us.
What to do next?
1. Publish a post with your haiku or tanka if you have a blog. If you haven’t got a blog, you can share them in the comments down below. In case you have published a post, you can submit its link in the linking widget.
2. After you have made the post, take some of your time and visit the links of other participants. This is how we learn and improvise. Return again at the end of the week if you have made your post during the weekdays because there would be new links to visit, which would help us all to make connections and develop the feeling of community and togetherness in our adventure every week. Even if you can’t take out the time to visit all the links, then visit at least the link shared before or after you and offer your feedback and develop comradeship with that person.
