    Kind of makes a vacation down south look inviting, Lary! A lovely ku, as always.

    Thanks, Mryon...
    I'm glad "a foot" works okay...it's just not
    the same to say "30 centimeters"!

    Thanks, Aurora!

    Hi electraglide... not sure who you are,
    but I'm glad you like it!

    Susan, I should have dedicated this to my
    daughter...she scoots away for a holiday in
    Jamaica...the year before that, Mexico!

    Thanks, RaV...
    I've had about enough of winter now!

    ;-)

    joys of spring -
    in my footprints
    squashed snowdrops

    ..is a found commercial object (as opposed to a natural product:) a Šopyright issue? haiku paparazzo?

    Laryalee,
    _Don't we fold time's cloth too tightly, thereby getting caught in the creases we've made?
    _Here, your smallest increment of time is the season.
    -HOW GRAND-!
    _M

    Ooops, missed you, Kala...we were here
    at the same time...thanks!

    Hi electraglide,
    I found your snowdrops -- not squashed --
    on your blog ;-) (interesting question, too...)

    Thanks, Rita!

    Magyar, I always enjoy your comments...
    good to see you!

    :-)

    I enjoyed the haiku very much, but makes me want to reveal this pun:

    "It's snowtime folks!"

    Sorry about that!

    I wonder if you have made this into a delightful haiga, maybe a future Christmas card as well?

    Hi Alan,
    thanks for the smile!
    No haiga...yet... ;)


    I enjoyed your haiku, Bob...
    (I hope it's not a headache!) ;)
