bill,
our relentless winter continues...
8 inches of snow yesterday on top of 10 already...
3-6 more tomorrow night...
2-4 more wednesday...

temps on tuesday to nosedive...
high temps the rest of the week
between 0 & 5 above...
winds chills 25-35 below zero...

so, i offer this haiku from our last warm days which occured on october 21, 22 ,23 & 24... & to
make it a little warmer i'm adding
a touch of california dreamin' to it...


a Giants cap
on the jack-o-lantern...
indian summer

Bill,

This is an especially strong haiku. My favorite among the last dozen or so. There is motion, sound, and narrative in this haiku.

Always a pleasure to stop by here.

I'm going to be reading some Basho tonight.
