Focus on Rebirth

As a snow covered Mount Healy looks on from betwixt the clouds, I emerge from the woods, skirting the golf course on my way into work. Shoots of newly green grass push their way through the barely thawed surface of what was just a month ago a frozen tundra.

Soon the course will be rolling knolls of fresh green carpet on which will be played many a memorable round of golf, as our guests experience interior Alaska in the summertime.

A chill, not even remotely related to the temperature, runs through me, causing a wave of gooseflesh to raise up on my arms. I’m really here.

Crisp clean air tinged with
just the slightest hint of frost,
thaws once frozen heart.

A Haibun/Haiku written for Frank Tassone’s Haikai Challenge prompt: Newly Green, and Girlie on the Edge’s Six Sentence Story cue word: Focus.
