Let me see..

Snowfall seen through haiku

It hasn't snowed like this in Madrid for 70 years. The photo is of our apartment window, with the green awning, seen from the park up the hill.

laundry on the line . . .
a sudden snowfall
fills bra cups

rock salt for cooking
strewn on the sidewalk
at the supermarket

perfect packing snow
packing tight the wheels
of my shopping cart

and photographers
fill the park

snowballs. . .
who can resist
snowballs! oo   o
