Winter afternoon—
so distant are the mountains
I cannot see them.

the scrub-oak-shrouded mountains
keep time with the moon.

Lovers of small words and small poems usually gather each Friday at Recuerda Mi Corazon to share their haiku. Because Rebecca is in San Miguel de Allende today and next Friday, this will be our gathering place. Welcome!

will settle the dust
