The Haiku

Winter cold creeps in
Small animals scampering
Stocking their larder

The Prose

Activities picked up at Autumn's end. The impending cold imposed
hibernation tendencies. Living creatures snugly close to each other.
Fun for kids outside. Parents to catch up on tinkering in the house.
Never a dull moment even though snowing. The cold was not a deterrent

(total of 55 words)

For Chev's CARPE DIEM   -  In Kamishibai Extreme #1
to write a haibun (haiku + prose) in not more than 55 words
on the Winter Feeling


  1. We learn to live with what the weather brings.
    Nicely done.

  2. Very nice, they both paint lovely images to me.

  3. The cold and stupid snow does have its perks I suppose

  4. Give me the sun any day, but I guess we have to put up with the snow sometime.
    A great read and write.

  5. I was thinking about the poor critters outside - I watch them everyday yet they never complain :)

  6. Everything is so clean and beautiful in the fresh snow.

  7. It certainly picks up with the approach of the snow -- and that cold!

  8. The snow looks beautiful, but I think I'll take a sunny day..

  9. Every season has a reason to be happy!!!

  10. Such a busy season for nature and for humans! Enjoyed your haiku and your prose!

  11. Sun beats snow, but you can still get things done

  12. I think for kids snow is just fun.. being slightly older it seems to be in the way :-)
