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.
Haiku #119 (Christmas Ghosts)
I was awakened this Christmas morning in Japan after being visited by several ghosts of Christmas past. I was so happy, I did not want to wake up and lose that feeling of love and warmth. I wish I had more pictures…
Winter snow has finally arrived in Misawa this year…with no end in sight!
Back patio thoughts as Misawa gives me an unexpectedly warm day today! I’ll take it as the snow will be here soon. Winter is coming!
Woke up to a surprise dusting of snow in Misawa today! It continued to spit snow off and on all day. A bit too early for my liking! I guess it is that time of year and the snow will fall…in heaps all too soon!
I heard a loud squawking of crows the other day to find a murder gathered around a crow that had died. It seemed as though they were grieving and then plotting a revenge!
