It's been a very chilly week in my part of the world. The streets have grown quiet as frost covers windows. Most of us stay inside on these cold grey days. If we venture into nature, it is with caution and layers upon layers of cover.
Colleen Chesebro invites us to think about our experience of the season and capture it in verse. My poem is a little different this week. The winds and icy conditions have prompted deeper reflection.
I've written a simple Tanka (5-7-5-7-7) and used winter freeze as my kigo phrase. I hope you like my divergence from the norm.
