You can find my haiku under the Traditional Haiga section
of Haiga On-line - you will find there the original artwork for
which the haiku was written along with music composed to go
along with the haiga and Japanese translations of the haiku
(It is very beautiful when you see it all together.)

Interesting.. early frost and aging... synonymous in my line of work. and so many an early frost comes to those who do not care for their garden... I never knew much about Haiku, mysterious to me... but this works for me on many levels of interpretation... and it falls into an area of my deep knowledge, so i dont feel left out of it reading... i like this short impacting style... kinda makes you just deal with a subject matter very matter of fact... nice Joyce!

Northeastern living in my opinion would suck in the winter
Fantastic poem, Joyce.

It made me think of snowflakes and how fragile they are - perhaps that's how we all become as we get a little older. There is also beauty and uniqueness in the process of aging. Wonderful!

Yes, frost and creaking joints do indeed spell the winter season... I like this tie-in of nature - our own and the atmosphere's. :)
