Fanfare on Christmas Eve

Dark sea, winter sea. The view from the Cliff House in San Francisco 
on the day of Dr. Arima's visit which began this blog.   jhh


ice coated
the dogwood tree twinkles
after a squirrel's leap

on starlit ice
the three-legged cat
skids home

the wonder
of old starlight
just reaching us

church bells--
the crackling passage
of expectant feet

from Star-Mapped
