January In Haiku

     I think a little more Haiku is in order… Don’t you? Okay, seeing as how we all agree, here is my look at January in Haiku.

     Make your Monday memorable,

Jake.

JANUARY IN HAIKU

January In Haiku

 

Christmas now over

Remittance now expected

Santa Claus now broke

 ………………………………………………..

 A new year begins

But old habits still linger

Wait until next year.

 ……………………………………………………..

 Post season football

Elimination for one

  Joyous the other.

 ………………………………………………………..

 Snow and icicles

Rooftop sleigh marks almost gone

Spring two months away.

 ……………………………………………………………

 January thaw

Never lasting long enough

Then winter returns.

 …………………………………………………………….
