    How interesting…this haiku seems to say to me that as things change, they stay the same…. It’s a lovely image… Thank you.

    Happy New Year, Fay…Thanks for a year helping me explore haiku. All around in the snow, there’s the evidence of rabbits…I hope something bright and joyful leaps into your New Year.
