Cold day --
the fingers more stiff

haiku-shelf said...

thank you, Polona and John!

yes, Polona, life is like the seasons ...

Devika said...

Fingers are cold, but not that stiff, Angelika

Winter or summer --my fingers often move faster than my mind :)

Good one,
could see the effect of winters on age...on guard :)

Leon Basin said...

Hey, how are you doing?

haiku-shelf said...

Thank you, Devika!

haiku-shelf said...

Hi, Leon! Nice to meet you. Did we meet before? However... The year is still young! Good wishes for 2009!

haiku-shelf said...

p.s.: I feel better than years before, Leon. My body and soul do like this winter (in the moment we have heavy coldness here with snow, a blue sky -- it`s wonderful in my garden, in the woods)

It must be the weather, my child.

Humor and pathos nicely blended in this one.

Thank you, Devika, Donka and Magyar!


In the moment I`m busy with editorial work, Devika! I`ll publish a winter issue of WHC-German in some time (German haiku-poets have sent many good haiku).

Devika said...

Nice to have that kind response, Angelika.

German -- i would need an English translation :)
