The Last Red Embers

the last red embers
flickering in the white ash
of New Year's Eve

An old haiku, written on a previous New Year's Eve, suddenly becomes appropriate once again: even a stopped clock keeps the right time twice per day!

As ever, we have seen the New Year in with a warm fire in the hearth.

The image that makes the haiga looks as if it might be from a fire, but is, in fact, a large chunk of chalky sediment that recently popped out of my tetsubin! This is using decent bottled water, too - I cannot imagine the situation if I were to use chalky Thames valley water in the kettle...

A Happy New Year to you, Gentle Reader - I hope that 2015 brings you many good times, and many good teas.
