Renhai Reflections 82: Against the Cold

Against the Cold

A Renhai by Vaughn Seward (vs) & Betty Kaplan (bk)
Written: April 16-20, 2008

Mountain hut —
we huddle around the one
cooking pancakes. /vs

Sheltered under a bridge — /vs
a homeless man finding warmth. /bk

Cold winter night —
she protects the outside plants
with plastic. /bk
