Well done, Jan...I would like to see more of these; writing a beauty like this one means that there are more in your poetic store. But it's not fair, skipping winter straight over to spring!! Goodnight and hugs. // paul

Thanks so much Paul your encouragement spurs me on to try my best with my creativity - guess I've come a long way since I stated in February - still got so much to learn!. I had to try and skip winter Paul - I want to be able to abandon the thermal vest asap! lol Hugs Jan xx

I saw that advice and I think it is good, jan. It's a very nice haiku. Your muse is being very clever these days!! Hope you had a lovely wednesday.
