Happy Haiga Day!

I haven't been writing much of late due to a variety of things, so I went looking through my files for something old that would work for today. I found this poem I wrote in January 2009.

happy endings
for all

I rarely use a centered format for my poems, and I didn't for "Finis," but it looks much better if centered within the circle in this illustration.

Have a good New Year's Eve, and healthy and happy 2018. To those of you experiencing this spell of Arctic weather, please stay warm and bring your animals indoors!
