    This scenery put me right there.. I like the smoothness of the haiku.

    I’m glad. I try for my haiku to bring you into that small moment. I also work on the smooth. Without the two “extra” lines for a tanka, sometimes haiku can be jerky or chopped sounding. I like the “photograph” of the moment to be clear and focused.

      Yes indeed. That red sunrise is almost like a fireplace in the sky with all those colors that warm you up inspite of the cold around you.

    Yes, re: conversation right above me. Love the juxtaposition and melding of the cold, wintry dawn with the rooster’s crimson crowing and the “fireplace” in the sky. Beautiful and otherworldly. xo

        Thank you–not sure we can find out anything more than walking distance to a train station? If it’s a foodie town, my daughter will be delighted. Thanks for that!

          The train station at Staples Mill Road or the one downtown? Are they staying overnight? Coming in during the day or at night? I’d be happy to offer her some suggestions through you. This is a grand foodie town. Incredible….

              Near the main street station is an area, Shockoe Bottom full of bars, restaurants…..and depending on the hotel they are staying in too….some of them have excellent restaurants. The Tobacco Company is in the “slip” Shockoe Slip, cobblestoned street, the Bottom is at the bottom of the hill/slip. Millie’s Diner has been around forever and is actually fine dining, Julep’s – “new” southern cuisine, There’s a Bookbinder’s seafood, like the Philadelphia Bookbinder’s, Berkley Hotel/Restaurant on Canal St in the same general area, just down from the VA state capitol bldg. designed by Jefferson, of course. Bottom’s Up Pizza is in shockoe bottom….If they’re staying at the Omni, it’s right there at the Bottom. I’m sure the concierge can recommend places closer. A restaurant opens and closes every day in Richmond so there may be something newer going on. I hope she enjoys the visit to/through the place. Weather is in the 40’s right now, Friday/Saturday colder and rainy with some Wet Snow. If for some reason they go to the VA Museum of Fine Arts, they have an outstantding restaurang in the museum.

                  You are most welcome. I wish she would have more access to local yokel foodie places like Perly’s, Chez Foushee, Toast, and Rappahanock Oyster Company. My favorite Japanese restaurant in the Bottom just closed and is opening in another location.

    I hear the sound of the crow of a rooster as one can on a cold, crisp morning. Smooth as silk. ❤ ❤
