Winter



sleet and rain-
stirring extra sugar
into hot mush

all day long
the rhythmic beat
of melting ice

blank date book-
the gray afternoon
turns to white
Modern Haiku

very nice, I like the way you jazzed up a winters day. I can almost see the jazz music cover for a band called Hot Mush and a title track called "extra sugar" !

Adelaide said...

Thanks, Lorena. Here's to Hot Mush and "extra sugar" and the hit parade.
