Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Haiku Wenesday - Frost


A hoary coating
Makes blades of grass look ancient:
The dew of Winter


Fresh from the freezer,
A tall glass mug that's coated
With translucent ice.


An Old Wanderer
Admonishes us to take
The Road Less Traveled.

Join the fun!

I'm about to head out to meet up with some friends for a few beers- your middle poem is perfect!

Nice take on all three stances. I, too, was thinking a frosted mug, especially from Stewart's Root Beer, a small chain from where I'm located. Frost is a great author as are you!

These are so good. Three very different takes on the theme. I'll have a nice cold beer now and read some Frost.

Well written! Love the imagery on the first two, and the reminder on the third.

Happy New Year, my friend!
