Editor's Note


SNR's Writers



As evening settles into night
 Underneath the uncaring winter
 Stars, I am embraced by memories  
 Of what we were then, but what  
 We are not now, and yet in that
 Remembrance I sense the sweet
 Aroma of cherry blossoms which
 Now slowly descend and mix with
 The falling snow as I take my
 First steps towards spring.
