Haiku for Snow

Haiku Friday

Finally! A chance to do a seasonal haiku! We get so little interesting weather here in New York...

Cars cuddle under
their fluffy white comforters,
cozy as a nest

Tree branches frosted,
a thick layer of icing
delicious and cold

The desperate tires
strain to grip the smooth glass street
angry at failure

Hubby hurts his back
(he told me to add this one...)
clearing heavy snow.

(FYI: Hubby is OK. His back just hurts a little.)

Want to play along on Haiku Friday? You know what to do: Write haiku, any theme. Put the post url into Mister Linky here, then please leave a comment after linking.

And be sure to have a great weekend!

Love your 'seasonal' haiku capturing the 'essence' of several realities of a snowy winter ... sorry 'hubby' hurt his back shoveling snow.
Hugs and blessings,

Love the snow-as-icing image! Makes me wish we had snow here.
