winterness
even without the wind
the chill

"Winterness" simply means, to of, a sense of or state reminiscent of winter, or of winter itself. The haiku is part of a series I have been working on.

About the author: ellis clay, gypsykid at gmail dot com

I've been writing and studying haiku since 1992. I've self-produced a few of my own collections of haiku, most recently 'ku' in 2000, and 'nine haiku: winterness' this past winter. I am currently working on a collection of one-line haiku to be completed by this summer.

    I'm shivering, too!


    so cold -
    even the air cracks

    winter winds howl
    hands embracing -
    potbellied stove

    -

    dirty date
    unbreakable ...
    dance with the worms *

    -

    one's life
    in a pine condo -
    mortality *

    -

    wintry morn
    creaky floor -
    early riser

    -


    * from robert ebisch

    looking forward to reading your one-line
    haiku. i am particularly sensitive to all the seasons particularly winter and autumn. your winter haiku i could relate to.

    adding to this
    winter chill
    next door death

    hoarfrost -
    the bitterness
    cross her face

    -

    summerness --
    even without the rain
    the wetness
