Haiku sequence: still cold

For Frank Tassone’s haikai challenge.


wood stove roars red

and tongued heat licks the walls

on the pond ice cracks


night hush falls

stars quiver in the still cold

a burning log sighs


morning breaks

still as the white-furred rushes

by the frozen pond

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

    1. With a bit of luck, tonight is the end of the three day cold spell and the last night with negative temperatures for the foreseeable future. Sorry to hear about the snow 😦

      1. You are blessed! Otherwise i am not wondering about in the South of France. Here its Bavarian Siberia, and like the people the weather is equivalent. 🙂 Best wishes, Michael
