Two degrees: haibun with shadorma

#Haiku Happenings #5: Janice’s latest #shardorma #haibun!


Yesterday morning I was in the kitchen moving plates, running water for tea, waking up, when I heard a radio voice announcing the temperature outside as “negative two”. I already knew it was a below-zero morning, the first this fall.  What startled me was the language she used: “negative two”.


the word slays my mood

try “minus”

to measure

those degrees below zero

they’ll rise to “plus”
