Haibun: Japanese Traditions
The cold full moon is always magical especially when it sparkles off newly fallen snow. After spending several hours wrapped well against the cold watching the Geminids meteor shower, I softly creep back into my home and prepare a hot bath with yuzu floating in the water. The sharp tangy scent fills my senses. I slide into bed beside my husband and snuggle. He murmurs in his sleep. The full moon goes to sleep.
