Haiku Friday

Written on Thursday, for my Friday Haiku inspiration:

Today a very cold rain is falling. It’s about 30 degrees Fahrenheit, and we’re hoping for snow, for winter play’s sake, and snow days off from school. As I take the girls to school in the dark morning hours, we say to one another, “This would be a perfect day to stay home, all cozy in jammies, with a steaming mug of cocoa and a good book to read.”

We know, though, that today we will work. The girls will go to class, do their studying. I will go to school, too, to help students with their math questions.

When we all get home, after the day’s duties are fulfilled, our time together will be all the sweeter. Rest after toil.

These wee cogitations are the inspiration for my Haikus today:

Precipitation

Wipers on “fast”; can’t keep up.

Cold enough to snow

Such a dark morning.

We’re sleepy; want a snow day,

Cocoa and a book

Keep driving to school.

Work comes now, but later . . . Play!

Anticipation
