    We are having a flu epidemic here, so I am just over it, I hope, and I enjoyed the hiaku during our coldest spell this winter.I'd like to be the one walking with the cat in the snow. (And then rushing inside to the fireplace.)

    Thank you! I do not have a cat right now,
    but the joy of the relationship is
    wonderfully stated in this haiku!

    I wish my cat would walk with me. Anyway, I
    like your haiku.

    rush hour traffic
    this wintry morning--
    pelican suspended on thermals
