winter mountains: haiku

old snow mountains

shrinking in a city lot

last week’s plow


Kingston’s snow mountains have been shrinking since their formation. I was happy yesterday to capture a photo (as I feared they may have melted). This is my response to this week’s Haikai Challenge. The kigo, “winter mountain”, originates from Japan’s snowy peaks, natural wonders that offer a feeling different from these urban heaps.

  1. Oh, I’ve seen such winter mountains. In the Mall lots. I was teasing with my companion that the city should wait until the snow melts and try and salvage all the salt that was also push in the pile. One can only wonder if there is any buried treasure 😉
