New Year's Day--
everything is in blossom!

New Year's Day--
everything's the same
'cept the rabbit
in my yard

Don, thanks for another great year of Eastern poetry!

Thanks so much, Conrad, for being there, the kind words, and for that rabbit in the yard, which, if here, would be lost in all this Pittsburgh snow.

Have a great new year.
