More poetry

I've always loved the cadence of haiku. So these are kind of pretend-haiku. ^^

***********

Like tiny glittering diamonds
threaded on a lacy doily
ice crystals have gathered
on the rim of the garden’s water basin.
The frost came suddenly, last night.

Lovely! Though... I'm not ready for winter! *pouts*

Thank you. ^^

Me neither. But I looked out of my bedroom window this morning, and the grass had this strange pale turquoise sheen that it gets when it's covered with frost, and there was a thin layer of ice on the water in the basin.

*brrrr*

*AND* I'd forgotten to close the window in my bedroom. So by the time I went to bed around midnight, my room was literally *freezing*! Took me ages to fall asleep, because I was cold, despite the nice thick blankies. *sigh*

We've had snow already. *blah* SO not ready. And I just read an article in the news that our County will be having to cut corners on clearing the roads this winter because of the rising cost of road salt. >_<;;
