sudden cold

November certainly is near.  Tomorrow.

I’m reading a December 1997 issue of Time Of Singing.  I remember these poems from when I was helping with my mother’s care.

An old haiku of mine from this issue:

sudden cold –
Christmas cactus
already blooming

I still remember seeing the lovely flowers of this cactus for the first time, a few decades ago.  This photo by Karl from another year shows the flowers in detail.
