#130 of 365 – 3 Haiku about snow

3 Haiku about snow


snow in the forecast

no leave for the self-employed

bills already late



opaque velvet sky

clinging to stars we can’t see

snow due tomorrow



too much snow for school

the kids are home for a week

Oh, please send the plows!

    Love these…Merle at her best even in the face of Nature’s adversity! If there’s no school for a week, that probably means my g-k’s will be at home, too. And my son will be doing his regular job…by computer. Sheesh! Where’s the fun in that?

      Thanks Ron! The week out of school was actually from a couple of years ago when we had more than a foot of snow. Thank God…so far this year we’ve been pretty lucky (unlike so many other areas)…but that week was a fun day and a half, and a verrryyyy slllllowwwww rest of the week! 😉

        Got it! Glad you’re not snowed in…that’s just got to be a royal pain in the old kazoo! We may get a light dusting of snow Sunday night and into Monday morning if the weather-gurus have been keeping their ouija board waxed and polished. *g*

    For all those who may be wondering, SassyD is my mother, whom I love very much! Now regarding this comment, somehow I think this may be some sort of memory of me and siblings – three delightful children who I’m sure she loved being locked in with! 😉 Hope you don’t mind being “outed” SassyD!

    • sassyD says:

      No, I don’t mind as long as you did the outing. Yes, I have many, now happy memories, of desperately trying to find things to amuse three very creative children. Most of the times I succeeded–there were those times when I failed miserably.
