Moon – Haibun

Lately, there has been nothing to the days but gray. It looks like a brewing storm. But it would turn out to be a calm slate of gray that just lingers. This look is carried through to the nights.

My crystal ball can’t say how clear the night sky will be in the mountains. But I am really looking forward to getting out of the city just the same.

The plan is to leave at eight in the morning, so naturally we left at eleven. This is always the case. Especially when this is not going to be a day trip.

Pedestrians are walking over the Tappan Zee bridge walkway. This is a new addition. What an amazing view that must be. That, is going on my to do list.

Ongoing road works along the route is finally over. This makes for a more pleasant ride. Along the way, we pull over every now and then for photos of turning leaves.

In the mountains I look forward to gazing at a night sky that offers some rewards.

  1. Really like this. Great storytelling. I know everyone is talking about the imagery and it is awesome, but I connected most with the planning to leave at 8 so left at 11 part. I’m always ready, sitting, and waiting, and it’s not a day trip. People always add an extra hour to our supposed arrival time. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • ๐Ÿ˜ŠThat is every trip. Since it’s always about getting out of here to go relax. It feels like tge relaxing starts before we even leave. To take care of that supposed arrival- meetup time, I just make sure each group have their own keys.. I’ll see you when I see you. No stress.๐Ÿ˜Š


  2. Just looked up your Schuylerville. You’re up there! We used to make it up there to the Saratoga Springs Jazz Festival. Heard Boney James for the first time there.๐Ÿ˜Š. Different times๐Ÿ˜Š
