The Narrow Road (7) – Haibun – December 14, 2015

Hofgarten, Innsbruck

My day trip to visit the Christmas Markets of Innsbruck begins and ends at the Hofgarten.  How different from our parks in Arco and Riva, still full of leaf laden trees, dressed in their bright colours, the parks are inviting.  Here there is a feeling of abandonment, though I can imagine how lovely this park will be in the summer.

cold dying light
last autumn leaves still fall
gates close at five
