    Haiku February

    Apparently this is a "thing" even though April is national Poetry month ...

    So let's try to do a haiku a day here on Pet Talk, everyone play, see how many we can post each day!

    I will start with 2, as it is now February 2nd ...

    February dawns
    With cold white skies, clouds hold firm
    Unyielding to sun

    Silhouetted trees
    Branches form black lace against
    A stark winter sky

    Give me a snow here
    Give me a snow there
    Give me a snow everywhere
    "I've been defrosted by Cassiesmom" Spring is here somewhere?

    February's here.
    So far it's ice and snow too.
    Will this never end?

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."

    The arctic vortex
    slowly spins down on the states
    my bones really hurt.

    Scraping my windshield
    A squirt of water may help
    Hose is frozen, too.

    Puxatawney Phil too?

    Today feels like spring
    Warm air, humid breezes but
    I do not trust it

    It's a sunny day
    Bright outside and not too cold
    A mood-lifting day!
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Two reactions to today's unexpected snowfall:


    The toddler next door
    Discovers snow with bare hands
    Giggles with delight

    One mile away, a
    Store clerk pushes heavy slush
    Mutters, "wrong again!"

    Cold sunshine today
    But it will not stay, big storm
    Lumbers on eastward

    Snow come with the dawn
    At least they say it will, my
    Hopes are truly up

    It's cloudy today
    Not bright and sunny out like
    yesterday's weather.

    A giant snow globe
    Right outside of my window
    Am I all shook up?

    ------

    That summer weather
    So far off at this moment
    Who turned off the sun?

    Good one - and welcome to the part of the country that actually gets weather! Enjoy!

    Forecasters appear
    Giddy anticipation
    Coloring their speech

    Children start wishing
    For a snow day tomorrow
    Parents, meanwhile, cringe
    I've Been Frosted
