haiku wednesday

cold winds lift red tiles
to fall and break on black ice
shattering cover

up above our heads
open crisp blue sky revealed
tossing wisps of hair

nets hold back debris
block out seeping alfresco
until the new roof

  3. Good ones!! They came alive for me. Well done :)

    Hrmmm. Sounds like you have a few commentors who need to be challenged to join us, Nessa...

    Such an outpouring for Dr. John - he was certainly loved by many, wasn't he! A great loss in the blogosphere.

  12. Great haikus but I do hope you are keeping warm! I wouldn't fancy any kind of al fresco at the moment it's chilly here too.

  13. Look at it this way, Nessa, all the baby wasps and bees that are hatched can safely fly away. Spring is coming, you know.
