Monday Morning #Haiku 133 & 134 — Unwhite Christmas



December in bloom,
kissed by winds from the Azores:
Jack Frost in exile.

Father Christmas wilts
and casts his clothes from the sleigh:
yearns for good old days.

    1. Thank you, Jean. Am glad you loved my post. I like your description of the Mahonia being like a big lamp. I’m sure that my mahonia has at least ten times the flower-clusters it had last year. It sounds as if this is what has happened to yours, too.

  1. Oh where did our dear friend Jack Frost go? It’s been so mild again, but I’m so glad he visited for your birthday dearest Sarah πŸ™‚ No wonder poor Father Christmas longs for those good old days. At least we have blog snow… but your haiku and photos, as always, bring me smiles no matter the weather… πŸ™‚ xxxx

    1. Oh Sherri, I used to love it in my childhood when Jack Frost made pretty ice-patterns on the outside of my bedroom window and huge icicles hung from the gutters. But then I didn’t have to consider the heating bill in those days, not that most bedrooms were heated then….Reminiscence time. Must be getting old D: xxxx

    1. Same here. I so love frosty weather and a proper delineation between seasons. Also, cold weather helps kill the germs and some of the insect pests that we don’t want surviving the winter in large numbers. That being said, I saw a honeybee flying about outside today. I just hope it doesn’t get caught out by a sudden drop in temperature.
