                                   Haiku for Winter

                                   mid-winter cold-
                                   a lemon Popsicle
                                   in the freezer

                                   a car door-
                                   loose windows rattling
                                   in the cold wind

                                   sleety rain
                                   the cafe window
                                   steamed with laughter

Hi Adelaide - Thanks for dropping by. I KNEW you would have a beautiful snow shot!

And lovely haiku, as always - I think my favourite is the window steamed with laughter. Thats perfect.

Thank you, Bill

Emma, thank you for visiting. Actually, although it's cold we've had little snow.
