Winter Haiku

Today, in an effort to stimulate my sluggish winter brain, I thought I'd try expressing myself using the ancient Japanese style of haiku. Why this seemed like a good idea, I could not tell you...wait, now I remember: it's cold and dark, I'm bored, and Grey's Anatomy is a repeat. Now that I've won the battle to fit my thoughts into the 5/7/5 syllable format, I do feel surprisingly serene (if also quite dorky).

Slip to the mailbox
On a skating-rink driveway
Winter really sucks.

Trapped inside the house
Kids have another snow day
School tomorrow, please!

Bone-chillingly cold
But we're out of hot cocoa
Maybe some whiskey?
