Nuts – I Feel Winter #winter #haiku #photography

penned in moon dust

winter shadows

Hidden in the shadows,

striving to find some life.

Digging out to freedom,

it’s cold outside tonight.

The snow it falls too often

covering all that I once had.

Bring my family’s coffin

fall’s food has all gone bad.

Cold I watch for spring

winter taunts the sun’s rays

one lonely nut

The prompt for Chevrefeuille’s Carpe Diem new haibun challenge which combines the haiku with a short story (microfiction) is Winter Feeling. This written from a squirrel’s point of view.
