How ingeniously you have blended the two images. When read between the lines, your haiku conveys more than apparently said !

to answer the question you posed below, yes, we got a lot of snow last week but this week not really. I hope the worst is finished. We had drought last summer, so with the good December snowfalls, I am hoping we have less drought this year.

Thanks for the info, Andrea. We never get any snow in Malta, so I'm often curious how my friends abroad manage to cope with both the cold and snow! Probably, if I were there I'd freeze :) // paul

So visual Paul. I love it ! It evokes so many thoughts and emotions all at the same time. Congratulations on POTW ! All the best to you for a very happy new year. Hugs, Susan :)

Such a perfect blend of sight, light, "blinds moonlight". Happy New Year Paul. I enjoyed Supercalifragilistic plus Expialudocious. Sad about "lonesome" Christmas, though I only lost parents & two beautiful US friends in 2018 and 2020. Shalom shalom.
