i took lola out for a stretch last night. the little persimmon tree on the corner next to hazel's house is spangled with wee fruits. they're squat and cushion-shaped. the persimmons in the alley are long and pointed. or would be if the tree  hadn't been severely pruned and had actually set fruit this year. anyway. i pocketed two of the little flattish fruits. crosses mark the top. the curves are covered in bloom.

the air was cold. my breath issued in clouds. mist rose from the ground. i hope tonight's walk is no less lovely.
wellidy. i go.
