it’s not what you think,

this winter shade; cold, blue light-

snowdrifts cast shadows

Happy Hump Day Haiku Challenge: frost

delicate layers

frozen silk, icicle strands

spider roost hoar frost

 

frost

by Angie Quantrell

 

I LOVE hoar frost! Magical frozen icing drapes every day scenes with cold lace. I also realize hoar frost drops the temperatures to triple cold. But take pictures, I will, frozen fingers or not.

How about you? Write a haiku about cold weather and share with us. Happy Hump Day!

Happy Hump Day Haiku Challenge: 31 October

autumn’s pumpkin king!

here today, cooked tomorrow;

commence with slaughter

 

by Angie Quantrell

 

good-bye 31 of October, hello 1 November!

Besides pumpkin delicacies, what are you looking forward to in November? We’d love to read your haiku! Or just your comment. But you could write your comment in 5-7-5 syllable format! That would be fun. 😉 Also, it would be haiku.

Teacher (the older one) and student (from way back when in 3rd grade) who is now a senior in high school!

Fun! What a lovely, well-spoken young lady! It was a joy to spend time with her.

BEWARE leaving the cat alone to her own devices in the RV while I’m out trotting around the pasture.
