Magpie #43




Old door swollen shut
In the night snow covers stairs
No getting away

  1. Wow! You nailed the next five months in 13 words! How true how true....

    Looking out at yesterday's snowfall, I keep thinking that I'm just not ready for it. But it is December, after all.....

  3. being snowbound against my will would be horrible. if it's a matter of choice and I had enough to do, i might not mind it so much!

    great use of the prompt.

  6. Boiling down a lot of imagery and rhetoric to a few simple words that say it all very well instead. Perhaps even better. Nice magpie.

  9. Suz,
    Old door swollen shut ... a captive depending on your point of view? And who might be inside with you?

  12. And it's only the beginning! Two and a half feet of snow here makes it hard to get away and barely warm enough to stay. :) Nicely said!

  16. Why would anyone want to get away?

    Being snowed in is the best :) A break from the fussiness of life.

  18. Door swollen shut? Stay indoors is the option where many chores can be accomplished. Great Magpie!

  19. To be stuck indoors on a cold day ...with a cosy fire, a warming drink and a wonderful window seat to sit at, a purring cat on your lap, and watch the winter world. Wonderful.

  21. i have heard stories where the door was shut by meters of snow - think it's not a bad thing...nice haiku!

  22. No getting away - now that could be good or bad depending on who you are snowbound with.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Don't want to get away - there seems to be a world full of warmth behind that swollen door! :)
