Cold Haiku

Sometimes being cool-
suprficially, outside-
goes too far...to cold

Minnesota air
in winter freezes hot tea.
There are folks like that.

The cold and unclothed
may feel colder and less dressed
when we buy garbage

Winter outerwear:
does it matter how it looks
if it keeps you warm?

Pope Francis has said,
"A little bit of mercy
makes the world less cold."

Longfellow observed
we see sad people as cold,
not seeing their pain

When I am warmer
than that which is around me
it feels cold to me

You wish to be cool
formal, not over friendly
but you come off cold

My mucus membranes
of nose and throat are inflamed,"
or - "I have a cold"

Dickens described:
the sun shines hot, wind is cold
on bright winter days

Good line!

I'm reposting mine:


Into the warm house
I touch my hand to her neck
And say, "cold fingers."

Is there a way to post on haiku horizons? I got the impression that you need a website to link to, which I don't have. I'll check again.

I found the comments there. My haiku has prompted a response by Alice, and then one by me in return.

Posting there does require having a blog. I forgot that not everyone has a blog.

But it appears that it's okay to post in the comment section. I've done it, and no one has complained yet!

Here's the exchange we did there. Alice responded:

my joy and sorrow
nose pressed tight against the glass
the sight burns my soul


To which I responded:

Let the heart envy
The soul is for greater things
Life and love burn there
