A WINTER HAIGA



* * * *

For the above sketch I used oil pastels. I used to work in them a lot. I can now see it will take a while to get a sense of their possibilities back again. :-) As to the haiku, I find the sound of spinning tires on ice very agitating. Maybe because I can guess the frustration the driver must be feeling. At any rate, this recent snow fall is all but gone. Now I only have to deal with the last of run-off from rooves and terraces that freezes on the sidewalks. But I really can't complain, there's plenty of heat and food. Life in my cave is good.

Lovely. It never snows here so I wonder what a comparable image would be.

Thanks, annieelf!

Hm, to address your question, maybe "tires spinning in mud"? :-)
BTW, I may be moving to Santa Barbara, after 22 years in this apartment, and all my life on the East Coast. But I think it's the right move. And I won't miss snow at all if I do. LOL!
