A Winter’s Vacation

A long day apart
followed by another
will make these tender ones remote —

but late at night
passing an upstairs window
and caught by the moon
as it mingles with the dim street lamp,

I will pause,

and notice the overlapping snowshoe paths
behind the house,
evidence of our time together.

    It’s me again (sheepish grin) I was going to post this on your About page but couldn’t find a comment thingy. So…I nominated you for The Reality Blogger Award. I’m not sure how you feel about such accolades, but I couldn’t, in good conscience, allow your blog to go unrecognized when listing the blogs that inspire me. Here’s the short link: http://wp.me/p1XDRR-6s

      How wonderful, I appreciate you thinking of me. I don’t know that I could say how I feel about awards, but your recognition is moving and I will always accept kindness that is offered. Though it will probably take me a day or so to get the post up. Thanks, too, for the note about comments on my “About” page. I tried to adjust it just now and can’t seem to get them to show. Perhaps I’ll make a separate page for the purpose.

      No sheepishness required, post any time…Be well. Gassho ~
