Snowfall seen through haiku

Let me see..

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

Snow in Madrid?! Wow!

I love the way you've used the snow-coated branches to frame your picture. :)

And I'm with you on the snowballs!! :D

"Wow" is one of the words we're using here. The people who would have been on the 965 canceled flights at the airport, due to poor visibility and a lack of snowplows, are using a different one.

Thanks about the photo, too. When I worked as at newspaper, the photographers were always happy to teach me about their craft.

Wow! To both the snowfall and the haiku. Very nice. I especially like the imagery of the first.

Thanks. Sometimes life just hands you a poem. The snow-padded bra wasn't mine, by the way.
