From The Dryer

Embracing warm sheets
Hands gratefully soak up warmth
Outside snow glitters

    Although I have become somewhat jaded about haikus of late, owing to the PLETHORA of ’em to be found in the blogosphere, I must say that this is a ripper, Janet! 🙂

    • Margaret, that makes your enjoyment of my haiku even more special. 🙂 Trying to convey an attitude/emotion in 17 syllables is the poetic equivalent to the 100 words stories I do for Friday Fictioneers, where every word has to count. Speaking of plethora, a lovely word, have you ever seen “The Three Amigos?” There’s a hilarious use of plethora in it and the whole movie is laughing-out-loud funny.

      Have a marvelous Saturday!


  2. 11 words to describe what we all need on a cold day, BRAVO :o)

  3. Amy says:

    Wonderful warm feeling, beautiful said in just 11 words!

  4. I can relate to that feeling. Don’t forget the sweet smell of fabric softener.

  5. Lovely. We’ve got towels in the dryer now. And there is brunch going on in the kitchen that smells divine. Happy Saturday morning to you! 🙂
    Have an amazing day!

    • Right back at you, Crystal. In the Chicago area, it’s a great day to stay inside with hot tea and a book, but I have to go out for a bit, so I’ll enjoy the beauty of the snow while trying to keep warm. At least the wind appears to have died down a bit.


  6. Such beautiful words make me almost miss the winter scene back home…. Almost. 😉
