on midwinter day
whispered breath less visible
spring still a mirage

Carpe Diem #892 Kan-no-uchi (mid-winter)

Inspired by:

“…Mid winter is the coldest time of winter, but its also the moment that the cold starts to loose control. Nature is turning back to the warmer weather of spring…”

This month at Carpe Diem Haiku we’re working on kigo ( season) words. That is, words that in this form of poetry is referring to the time of year.
In this episode the prompt words are “Kan-no-uchi (mid-winter).”
