the first frost —
ghosts drift from the boxes
of winter clothes

  1. An effective juxtaposition. Charlotte’s suggestion is worth considering; of course, succinctness may not be what you’re going for.

    My comments are infrequent these days, because of foreign and domestic travel, film festivals, grandchildren, and stuff like that.

    • Bill, it’s good to see you whenever you drop by. And I always appreciate whatever words of wisdom (or entertainment) you have for me. Enjoy all your activities — I wish my life sounded nearly as fun as yours does these days. 🙂

    • Thanks, Ash. I have had some nice responses to this one both on- and offline, it’s interesting to see what kinds of chords it strikes for people. One friend commented that it made him feel homesick, but in a good way. I can see that as I always experience my most intense nostalgia at the change of seasons.
