Napowrimo 29 – small moments of importance


Lost in fog near river,
weaving through my trembling legs
small cat came and purred.
Cat led the way home
panic retreated,
beckoned by porch light.



Smog hid London streets
‘til a gust of blessed wind
showed us stars, still there.

  4. Powerful.
    The haiku in particular made me shudder. If I go out right now, I won’t be able to see more than a handful of stars. Smog has blanketed the city and there is no more sky to see.
