Senryū on a winter’s night

Winter gives little
inspiration, but demands
my full attention.

Last night, Armagnac
and friendly conversation.
Tonight, hot black tea.

(Friday 07 August 2015)


Several years ago, a friend suggested we keep in touch by texting the occasional haiku (or senryū) back and forth. It had not happened of late, though, so his text about “red curry hot and good” was an unexpected delight. In the ensuing phone-call, we talked about winter’s power to drive us into hibernation. 

Maybe that’s why it’s more than a month since my last post on this blog.
