2012 November PAD Chapbook Challenge- Day 23
We’re coming into the home stretch on the PAD challenge, and I must say this month has flown by! Usually by this point, I’m starting to lose inspiration, but I think because I chose to write in haiku this year (which I’m starting to think in!), my task is much easier than in past years where I tried to write in a wide variety of poetic forms each day. Today’s prompt, by Amanda Fall was to write a “deep” poem.

“Deep cold” is a winter kigo. Interestingly, The Haiku Handbook lists winter as November, December, and January, so my post-Thanksgiving haiku fits right in here. More poetic responses can be read on the Poetic Asides blog.
Being let out in the cold or isolated is very powerful with this ku. Maire
I always feel a letdown after Thanksgiving. Good thing we have more holidays coming up! I think as I get older, the cold and especially the short days this time of year really start to get to me.
