Haiku Moment: frozen in thyme


crisp hoar frost descends

embroiders lacy fingers

winter’s herbsicle

I live with my husband and crazy kitty. Much of my time is spent writing, reading, and playing with the grands. You can usually find me sipping tea or coffee, nibbling on dark chocolate, and contemplating what to plant next in the garden. If not those pursuits, then I am probably trying to figure out how to cook and live in an RV, creating cards with rubber stamps, walking, hiking, or out snapping photos with my camera.

  2. I agree with Darlene. No snow here yet, thank goodness. I’ve never written haiku, but I got the message.

  3. No snow here near Saratoga Springs, NY, either. I want some, though. I love the personification in your poem and the surprise-herbsicle ending. Well done! Great photos, too! Thank you for your inspiration. Would you let me use your haiku as a mentor poem in my notebook with your copyright sign?

    • We want a white Christmas, right?!!! Gail, that is the kindest thing! Yes, you may use my haiku as a mentor poem. I appreciate that you asked and you are using my copyright! Thank you! Hope you get some snow!
