Covid shadows still prowl in the footsteps of last year’s passing, and even if we are on the other side of solstice, daylight never gets brighter than dusk. The holiday passed and I didn’t turn on my work computer, still, it waited, lurking and ready for this year’s first workday. I have followed the news and resigned to blend with this darkness, pretending that somewhere, someplace we could raise our flutes to celebrate matters improving.
this grey within grey —
daylight sluggishly drifting
shrouded in clouds
Today it is Haibun Monday as dVerse opens again with Lisa hosting. The topic is celebration and the return to normal which it does for many of us after the holiday season (though Thursday is actually a Holiday here in Sweden).
