  1. white breath?

    Sorry, I don’t get it!

    • ‘white breath’ is a winter kigo.
      For an example, when you utter words outside in the winter,
      you will see ‘white breath.’

      • Oh, now I see {white breath.}

        You must be referring to winter
        in the cold weather…

        For example, I’m outside now & it’s 81.°
        Wintering in Boca Raton, FL, &
        all I see is sunshine; just fortunate, I guess!
