Day 43 Luxury — Haibun Journey View From My Window

It’s black outside. The few lights I see, look like fires from distant camps. The still night is interrupted by an occasional loud truck rumbling past. I am thankful to be inside away from the chill of the night air. An ask a blessing on those who do not have such a luxury.

moonless night
lights, like campfires

a squatter shivers
