Winter Treads

How fast can I go?
The slickness is easily
Misjudged. Careful now!

Author’s Notes…

Ah, driving in winter.  Can’t remember how many people I counted in the ditch yesterday afternoon and evening once the snow had stopped falling.  Just because snow is not actively falling from the sky does not mean you can go normal speeds now, alright? Goodness gracious.. I am less afraid of the slick roads and more afraid of over-confident drivers.

This is my second haiku for the Weekly Writing Challenge by The Daily Post 🙂


In the words of Ray Bradbury, “Just write every day of your life…”. Your mission is to write five haikus — one for each of the five days leading up to this Friday when we will choose some entries and feature them on Freshly Pressed.

Of course, you can modify this challenge to suit your needs — you can write two haikus one day and three the next, or five all in one day, or one haiku every day from today through Friday — the choice is entirely up to you. If haikus don’t inspire you, you’re welcome to write a paragraph of prose instead. As always, the challenges are meant to be malleable so that they suit your needs.

While traditional haikus tend to focus on things found in nature — anything goes for this haiku challenge. You can write haikus about your dog, your house, your cat, your great aunt Tilly — anything that captures your muse. The object is to try a new form and put some variety into your writing projects. Looking forward to reading your writing!”
