Day 74- Cold Winter Sky- Haibun Journey View From My Window

From my window I gaze at the cold, rainy winter sky. I think of the Dr. Suess “The cat in the hat” with Sally and her brother complaining about it being too cold and wet to go outside, and nothing to do inside. It seems a fitting day for the task at hand, putting away all the Christmas decorations. I will not be damped by the weather. It’s alway sad to see the decorations come down, but since they stayed up an extra two weeks I will be glad to get the house in order.

red ribbons still flutter
forgotten decorations
