Still Cold

#Haiku Happenings #1 (2/4/19): Dwight Roth’s latest #tanka for my current #haikai challenge!

Punxsutawney Phil Makes Annual Groundhog Day Appearance

Grumpy old ground hog
Winter sleep interrupted
Still cold // spring will come
No dark shadow to scare him
Who would believe such a tale?


Frank Tassone asked us to write a Haikai poem for this ground hog’s day. Even though he did not see his shadow, it is still very cold in many parts of the country. So our prompt is “still cold”!
