deep cold

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.
