geese migrating south heading for warmer climates ~ honk and hink farewell white frost at daybreak sparkles as the sun rises ~ warm breath creates fog an ice blizzard blows weaving through the forest trees ~ white carpet of snow moisture and cold air forming ice on window glass ~ ice flower bouquet water drips freezing a tapering mass of ice ~ limpid stalactite cross or wreath made from aquifoliaceae ~ placed at the graveside Written 17th October 2020.

I have always loved your haiku strings, Tom. This one is very special. Winter is so often seen as a time of death but in the same breath you have shown us its beauty and compassion in the remembrance of love. Congratulations on your win! Sending you warm winter blessings. Over Fork Over!

Talk about reaching for the dictionary, Mr. Cunningham!! --'Aquafoliacae?' Whew! ... Honk and hink made me laugh. You can reuse it in one of your awesome limericks. ~ Gershon

Lol. Thanks Gershon, you must be a mind reader, just working on some, ill see what I can do. Tom

I like your 7-syllable word in the final haiku, Tom. Will I be able to use it in a sentence today? I think not, lol! I liked 'limpid stalactite' as a depiction of icicles forming. More lovely seasonal haiku from your fertile imagination. Warm regards, John
