across the lake one goose
honks once

    i saw what richard is saying, however, i asked myself, "where's the haiku"

    already freezing-
    across the lake one goose
    honks once


    i was rather perplexed, this piece says much, albeit, in the same breath, it says little.

    i imagine it (could) be winter


    thinking quickly, i tried this on for size:


    already freezing-
    goose honks once
    across the lake



    on closing; lately, when i see the word "goose", i see the humor.

    puddles filled
    ducks gather --
    once passionate sun, cooled
