    Martin,
    Great haiku! Here's one of my own:
    Of all the poems
    written on snowflakes
    No two are alike.

    I think the most striking part of this haiku is the first word - silence. Frequently it is the absence of some sensation that draws our awareness. Well done, Martin.

    pit-a-pat
    she breaks the ice
    on the window pane

    Nice, Martin!
    I like the way "silence" increases awareness
    of the melting.

    red hen, 5 chicks
    one fine autumn day
    motley duck, 4 ducklings
