Winter solstice soon.
Weather fakes balmy June day:
Whoops! trees have gone bald.
love the imagery in both!
Thank you, Cindy 🙂
Quite a beautiful picture – faking June indeed 😉
I’m sure this must make dressing a bit of bother 😉
Here in the Southern tip of Africa, our winters are mostly like that – freezing in the morning, hot enough to wear shirtsleeves during the day and cold again at night.
At the moment, I keep going out for walks in the middle of the day and getting overheated because I’m wearing the multitudinous layers I put on first thing, plus a coat. Then come mid-afternoon, the temperature takes a nose-dive again. Obviously we don’t have the extremes of temperature you have in SA, but our UK climate does seem to have changed quite a bit in the last decade.

Beautiful image of the bald trees, especially with the WP snow falling all around. Love your haiku, as always. 🙂
Thank you, Sylvia 🙂 I admit that the snow does provide an additional quirkiness to the haiku that I hadn’t planned for!
naked trees revealing all secrets
If trees could talk, I’m sure they could tell some wonderful tales about the antics of humans under mask of foliage!
Ahh…wonderful this…’Whoops! Trees have gone bald.’ With the falling WP snow, this makes for a beautiful post 🙂
Thanks, Sherri 🙂 I decided to have a go at a touch of haiku humour. Some of the great Japanese haiku masters have written absolute gems that are so playful, yet understated in a Zen way.
wow!! love both! that ribbon of light in the photo is wonderful!!
Such a compliment from the Queen of Photography, herself!! Thank you, Cybele:-)
Here in US it’s gets to be challenging telling one season from the other. Your words vividly expressed that.
I’m sure the seasons are less defined than they used to be in both of our countries.
