waiting for the mail to drop
through the front door slot

    expectations not fulfilled

    an event that you can sometimes set your watch by and other times… an eternity…

  3. Simple pleasure: getting a nice letter from a friend! YOur haiku brings those lovely memories back… (I now live in an apartment and have to go outside – walk a ‘street’ to the building entrence – and go downstairs to find my mailbox… not that fun anymore!)

  5. What Lea said. Irregularity. Daily but, irregular.

    Dear Mark: Thanks for reminding me that I need to trek to the mailbox. It’s full. . . when it gets cold, I can’t get the key to turn so the mail collects until it’s warm enough for the lock to function.

    • Just saw this comment, Meri. Hope you’ve gotten your mail by now! 🙂

        Yup — warmed up. Mailbox worked. Emptied it (mail from several days plus three parcels). Snowed again yesterday for five hours, but then it turned to rain. Thanks for asking.

        • Although we don’t get snow at our house, we do get lazy about checking the mail, simply because most of it’s junk, and why bother? 🙂
