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!

A very beautiful haiku. I hate how winter always gets to the bones, and how it always gets to the garden as well. Wonderful write!

Always a pleasure Joyce.
I can identify with the knees creaking even though there is hardly even frost here in South Florida! Yes, time to cover the cherished plants to keep them as warm as possible. I can see why this Haiku was tied for first place in the on-line contest. Kudos to you. Lydi**
