winter florets (haibun)

Memories of long ago so vivid, she can taste it. A young girl walks to school in the bitter cold. Crunch crunch, echo from her tiny feet.  White smoke comes out her mouth like magic and dewdrops trickle from her eyes clouding her vision.

smaller than springtime buds
sit on eyelashes

looks up open-mouthed
flower tingles her warm tongue
snowflake melts
