Michigan Winter – Haiku


Invisible sky
Covered by a great gray sheet
Michigan winter

Only occasionally will the sun or stars peek through a tear in that sheet.  It may seem gloomy, but it also helps moderate our temperatures.

About Chuck

I am retired after a career in electronics and in publishing. Today, my wife of 50+ years, Sylvia, and I live in a house on a hill beside a dirt road in rural west Michigan. We enjoy living in this country environment where livestock and wild life out number the human population.

    • Malaysia is one of the places on earth I would like to visit. My wife, our sons and I have lived in Costa Rica and Ecuador and love the palm trees.

  1. After days of sunshine, we have the gloom this morning. It was nice to sleep in…and the kitties joined me…but I think we all wish the sunshine was back.

    Hey, good luck with your surgery this week! I am with you in spirit (and feet!) and sending prayers for a skilled hand for the surgeon and successful results and healing for you. Let me know how it goes.

  2. I had kind of forgotten how our gray compares with other places. A friend still in NY is posting sunrise and sunset pics almost every day. Color… almost every day. And I tell him the sun comes up in gray and goes down in gray and we never see a hint of defined light or color.

  3. Instead of gloom this a.m., I looked out to a sea of white snow. When Jack, the dog went out for a run, he came in all covered with snow. He loved it. !!.
