Haiku Heights 201...Snow



Drifting flakes fall soft
Winter homes silent and cold
Snowbirds have flown south
 
 
 
[Prompt this week from Haiku Heights.  I took this photo last year of the birdhouse in my back garden.  The image also made me think of all the houses left behind when, every year, 'snowbirds' head to warmer climes in their RVs.]

    1. Good luck! Not terribly fond of hot weather myself, but I'm surely in the minority.

    1. Thank you. I think most folks who live in the north dream of going south at some point--usually around January. ;D

  5. I started a new teaching job in August in "snowbird country." With temperatures exceeding 110 degrees Fahrenheit for weeks on end, I wondered if I would survive. Now that the rest of the nation is gripped in cold weather, I understand why people migrate from north to south and back again!

    1. I also live in a place that is quite hot and dry for months on end (May-Nov). Contrary to folks who dream of sun in the winter, I dream of rain all summer. Maybe I'll become a sunbird!
