Haibun – Prompt: Mountains 29/04/2020


In Trentino (Italy) I live practically at the foot of a mountain. The sun doesn’t peek over that mountain until around 11:30 in the morning in deepest winter. However the day once it has come remains longer than in other areas of our valley, which is like a bowl, with another mountain to the west. Those on the other side of the valley are lucky in the winter because they have mornings! We are lucky in the summer because we have long evenings. I must say though it’s lovely to visit outside our valley where one can enjoy a sunrise and sunset.
