A haibun for Frank J. Tassone’s newest haikai challenge, for which we could write about either first snow or ever green (or both!).
My brother arrives, and my family all enjoy putting up and decorating our Christmas tree. He is taking his decorations to his new place, yet we put plenty of baubles on our own tree. Photos in macaroni frames and souvenirs from family vacations bring back memories, which I hope will stay evergreen.
Last year’s leaves are gone
Tree and decorations stay
This belongs to us
