One edge
hanging over the mountain--
the Milky Way

I love that "hot cinnamon milk"!

Were you up early to catch the dawn birdsong out in the wild?

all my very best

Not willingly :) My new schedule forces me to leave the house very early. As a reward- I get to see the world still 'in its pajamas' :)

Hi Vida! ;-)

I get to see the world
still in its pajamas


That's a two line part of a new haiku! ;-)

Hi Alan,
The third line of the haiku was not cooperating, so I got this instead :)


getting up in the dark,
walking out all alone,

I may miss a few dreams
or few talks...
but, hey,

I get to see the world
in its pajamas


Thanks for the idea!

all my best,
