  3. I love your winter haiku poems. And you are brave to start your own meme. I think I may join you if I can produce one this week with this theme. If not, I'll join next week. You need participants. Thank you for stopping by to my blog earlier. I'm hooked on haiku too.

  16. Beautifully written. :-)

    Let me try:

    Fog bellowing near
    Bringing the wet scent of brine,
    dulling the town's lights.

    Winter's arrival
    defied this year's calendar--
    snow in October.

  21. I love your winter Haiku. I struggle with writing Haiku, but here's my offering:

    Four cold feet make heat
    Snuggling under the bed quilt.
    Winter has arrived!

    Thanks for visiting my site. I'm pleased you enjoyed the "Bad Hair Day!" I have some friends I know would love to visit your site. I'll send them over:~)
