Stone – Snow Monkeys

Snow Monkeys  

The first cold shower
even the monkey seems to want
a little coat of straw.”         by Bashō

Shivering monkeys
can they survive the winter
of our discontent

Huddled together,
looking down toward Sendai
with wondering eyes?

Maybe the onsen
deep in Jigokudani
will ease their worries.
