Slushed Afternoon

As snows melt

Ice compacts 

Sheer layers

By morning light

Emily Dickinson's entire

Emily Dickinson's entire reputation is based on many short jots.  The tradition of Haiku and Tanka in Japan, and elsewhere, thrives upon the jot.  And even if the jot does not seem workable today, keep it recorded somewhere . . . you may fnd it useful the day after tomorrow, or the week after next.

Jots

They lay all over the place. I guess I inherited this from my beloved mother. Someday I will be at task to go through her notes. My own? Well Someday, I will go through those too. 

:D
