earth’s striptease: a haiku

asphalt road in white,
absent leaves, abandoned twigs,
fresh year undresses.

  1. We each see things with a unique perspective. The suburban streets become emptier when the threat of severe weather is announced (so the snow plows can go through if needed – cars are supposed to be off the street)… yes the road does look white before the plow comes through 🙂 … we can think; ‘a new year so soon’ or ‘a new year with each dawn.’

    Continued success in your writing 😀
