Winter Haiku

I’m thinking about doing personalised Christmas cards this year. With some nice, religiously neutral picture and a winter haiku (written by yours truly). Unfortunately, my haiku-skills are not quite what they used to be (wrote some really nice haiku in 2004 for the Ladies of Lallybroch Lit Forum Christmas Post). Hmph. The best I’ve come up with so far is:

Old Grandfather Frost
Tiptoeing around your house,
Makes ice bloom on glass.


Bak’d apple, clovers,
Cinnamon, nutmeg and pine —
The scents of winter.

(Perhaps I should simply take one of the 2004 haiku …)
