Trees in Winter

foreign sights
where sunk costs are weighed —
turning points
often marked too late
for a traveller’s taste

  1. Oh, just beautiful, Rob !! =) =) Do you find your inspiration comes more easily when you are out and about in the great, wide world ? After spending some days cooped up during the winter, I can feel my creativity freezing into something inaccessible deep in the pit of me… only brisk snowshoeing under cold and sunny skies will prompt the thaw…

    • I’m trying to bring mine out of hibernation — I feel like I went too far into this plan I had last summer to train for parkour and now I’m trying to find my way back again to a place where my mind and body cooperate again. But no matter how hard I try right now, I only seem to find time for a haiku here and there. I feel I’m finding the road again, though. 🙂

      Thanks for the kind words, and keep your spirits up til the thaw!
