My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie’s Heeding Haiku
So far the winter in Norfolk has been extraordinarily mild. We already have spring blossom on some trees, daffodils are showing, some are even blooming, and it’s too warm to wear scarf, gloves and hat. We haven’t even lit a fire! I love dressing up in layers of clothes and going for a brisk walk in frosty weather, to return to a welcoming fire. At the same time, the North of England, Scotland, Wales and parts of Ireland are being battered by fierce storms and floods.
Longing for crackle
of frost and haze of iced breath
warm woollen comfort
