    I like this ... although haiku is not metaphoric, we often perceive the stages of life development as its "seasons". Here the snowman maintains his smile even as his existence comes to an end...then again, maybe I'm just reading too much into it.

    Another take on this might be:

    low winter sun
    the snowman's smile melts ...
    a sad grimace.

    settling in the blue waters
