Haiku

A while back, during one of the giveaways, I became acquainted with one of my followers through her blog My Year In Haiku.  I loved her idea of expressing herself in seventeen syllables.  Not an easy feat.  You have to really think about what you want to say and then find the perfect seventeen syllables to do it.


Today, as Dog and I were walking at 6:00 a.m. in the cold, crispness of a snowy February, I thought of my follower and what words she might use to express what I was seeing.  Since I can't call her up and say 'hey girl, what do you think about all this?' I thought I'd try my hand at writing my own haiku.

brings peace to my wearied soul
cabin fever looms

So waddaya think?  

What would your haiku be to this weirdness that is winter 2010-11?  Is there a place in this vast nation of ours that hasn't seen snow this winter?

  1. Love the haiku. I hated writing those in school, they were painful. And I had totally forgotten that it's only 17 syllables.

    Your snow looks so much prettier than the snow here. I don't know why.

  2. Shall we take a nap
    And wake with the bluebonnets
    And green blades of grass?
