Cold weather: a set of Winter haikus

| Tuesday, January 23, 2018

The sky is a sea

Of grey clouds hiding the sun

Please come out today


Walking to class my

Nose freezes from the frigid

Temperature, wow.


Am I crying or

Is that just the wind blowing,

Snow onto my face?


It is always cold

Even when we think it’s warm

It is relative


Forty degrees, yes!

No jacket for me today.

Better than thirty.


Summer seems to be

So far away but it is

Coming so I will wait


For the days when I

Can go outside and not have

My fingers go numb.
