The Japanese developed a form of verse called Haiku that is written in 17 syllables divided into 3 lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, and employing evocative allusions. In the spaciousness of retirement, I will learn to speak Haiku. On this winter day in February I make my first entry. All the Best, Brigid 22 February 2017
Slow lazy day here,
soup’s hot; my slippers are on,
No dragons to slay.
