Day 70 — Wind Blown- Haibun Journey View From My Window

From my window the white winter sun is far overhead. The wind is blowing and spitting a bit of snow. White garbage is in the front yard. I look from other windows and see bits of trash blown from each view. Not just one side of the house but, all sides. I think about how we live in a throw away society and how much less garbage there would be if we were careful to reused and recycled. I also ponder how sometimes our lives blow us into areas where we are uninvited or unwelcome. How would one go about changing another’s view? What would you do to change yourself?
