Morning Haiku and Waka – December 28, 2014

colored first snow

snow falls
down this block a peach blossom
withers

The inspirational poem for the last of the series of Richard Wright’s December haiku at Carpe Diem Haiku Special:

keep straight down this block,
then turn right where you will find
a peach tree blooming

      • We’ve been having constant mist and fog since before Christmas. Ugh!

        At least snow is pretty.
        But hey, it could be ice … so … no complaining, right? 😉

        • Well .. it snowed in the afternoon of the 27th and we’ve still got most of it, which is very strange for here … but it’s slowly melting away. I do worry about the ice though and we were to go visit friends on New Year’s Eve, but might not make it with snow on THEIR mountain roads …

          • Yes we just returned last night. Short trip home, but we only have 2 weeks off at Christmas. We always head back a few days early to get over jet lag before going back to work.

          • Oh it was a tumor and I had surgery in November.It had become infected and was attached to 5 different places so it was very painful. I am feeling much better now and just recovering from the surgery. I am almost back to myself… just a little tired and I need to take it easy.

          • Yes it was pretty scary. I felt so weak and run down. Finally the pain was so bad and I couldn’t sleep and it hurt to walk I had to stop explaining it away. At first they thought it was a kidney stone, but the symptoms didn’t add up. After a second ct scan they spotted it. They hoped medication would help (they thought it was a cyst at first), but it didn’t respond to treatment and only got worse. The only option was surgery, so I was rushed in. In the operation they confirmed it was a tumor and not a cyst. I feel much better now and incisions have healed well. Thanks for the well wishes.
