Haiku for Winter

cold sunshine
the stray orange cat
tucked into itself

sleety rain
flowered umbrellas
sold out

blizzard winds
a spider shivering
in the window

3 Lights, winter 2010
Herons Nest, June 2010
Simply Haiku, winter 2004

Thanks, Gillena

You've caught the season very well.

Adelaide said...

Thanks, Bill. Last week that spider wasn't the only one shivering.

These work together so well as a sequence, Adelaide . . . . I particularly like the image of the stray cat curling into itself!

Best wishes for the new year!

Thanks, Maggie. Glad you stopped by. I found out that this cat is not a stray, but lives at the end of our road. A born wanderer apparently.
