Haiku – 1/28/2021

Trees covered in snow

A brief dusting overnight

Children filled with glee


Finally got some snow last night. Not much compared to what others get throughout the northern areas of the U.S., but for my kids it was more than enough to build a snow man and to to get me outside before I started my morning coffee, which I took with me, no way I am leaving it behind. But there is something kind of poetic about standing in the cold, drinking coffee, looking at a snowy landscape. I don’t think we got more than an inch, and it is a wet inch of snow, but in N.C. we will take it. Doesn’t snow much around here and I am fine with that. It makes days like today even more special. Quick question: are you a snow lover or not? Cheers.
