    Wonderful! You make this haiku writing look easy. A visit here always makes my haiku loving heart sing! Thanks.

  2. me too… mostly just flurries… one substantial storm, melted by morning at the beginning of the month. Beautiful haiku Mark.

    You write really great haikus! I love this – anticipation and emptiness.

  4. I remember having a duck pond in Tucson…no need to drain it for winter, though! Our Novemebr in Prescott has been very warm, save one stormy weekend. Can’t complain, yet the coming of snow holds lots of appeal, as well!

    I like the anticipation in your haiku. Seems the snow in most places is late this year.

  6. Awesome Mark this is a classical one. Could have been written by one of the classical masters. Well done.

    A wonderful capture. I can see it myself, and feel the mood too. Well done.

    Ducks in Maine don’t wait for snow…they keep a swimmin’ no matter. BUT I do love the image…it made me remember the duck tracks on the snow and Mill Pond of other winters.

    I can feel the emptiness waiting to be filled with the first flurries of snow… lovely!
