Spring is right around the corner and soon Japan will turn pink with cherry blossoms! I, for one, am ready for warmer weather!
The Road of Trying Times
I penned this poem back in the spring of 2020 while COVID-19 and the Pandemic invaded the world. I was in Salina, Kansas and a simple trip for food was a life-risking mission of necessity.

The snow began to fall in Misawa, Japan…and it has not stopped! We are setting records for snowfall!
Haiku #120 (Fuji-san)
Many people in Japan have noticed that the mighty Mt. Fuji, an active volcano, is absent a white snow cap this year. At this time last year and most years, Fuji san’s peak was covered with snow. The last time Fuji san erupted was in 1707, and it was devastating to Tokyo and surrounding areas. Some snow fell on Fuji a few weeks ago, but seemed to disappear rather quickly. Due to the volcano’s instability and the number of earthquakes Japan experiences, Mt. Fuji is monitored by experts 24 hours a day.
