A Japanese word, CHIJITSU, means LINGERING DAY, or LONG SPRING DAY: dVerse for this day April 16 we are challenged to write for haibun Monday, our own inspiration about chijitsu.
In truth, I have reached the time of life where the days no longer linger, instead, they accelerate.
One of my favorite pastimes has become with the welcome lingering of a day; the ever-present routine to cherish the moments I spend looking at old photographs. My family, friends, vacations memories that are so dear to me. These lingering times will be enduring as long as I have breath in me. Yes, I can spend long hours just remembering as they say, “back in the day.”
I also love to linger on profound thoughts and prayers; these desirable moments visit me to carry me off in a suspended passage of time.
A successful day
