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.
