Frost: Weekly Prompt

I have never done a Haiku before, so forgive me, please, if I screw this up.

frost creeps into bones

making joints feel frozen stiff

thaw me with whiskey

About S.K. Nicholls

is a steel magnolia from GA who currently resides with her rocket scientist husband in Central Florida. Even though she had a reputation as the class clown in grade school, she managed to successfully achieve a career in nursing that spanned thirty-five years. Putting down the stethoscope and picking up the pen, she started writing compelling, thought-provoking historic novels and riveting contemporary crime romps, telling it like it was and telling it like it is. Orphaned from her mother at an early age, she survived foster care, and in her youth resided in an orphanage in the North GA Mountains, the Ethel Harpst Home. Four adults call her mom and four little people call her grandmother. She enjoys reading, comedy shows, salt-water fishing, boating, and brewing Kombucha. Her family owns and operates one of the oldest and largest nudist resorts in the nation located in Florida, Cypress Cove.

  1. Does whiskey come with a St. Bernard?

  2. I think this is a wonderful haiku!!

  3. Cheers, Susan – here’s to hot toddies to thaw us out.

  4. Whiskey is the only way to survive winter.

  5. As an old Haikuist I can say you did a marvelous job.

  6. Reblogged this on mybrandofgenius and commented:

    My first published Haiku. Learning to say more with fewer words.

  7. This is wonderful! As I age, winter truly does seem to bother my bones.

    • I don’t like to admit it, but my joints are telling on me. I just went through more than twelve weeks of PT for a frozen shoulder, and have a Dr. appt in the am. (Hopefully my last with him). It wasn’t even winter when it hit me, but doc says that I was too sedentary last winter. Living in Florida and being as active as I am, I cannot help but wonder why. I think I am subconsciously seeking a reason for the Crown Royal on the rocks.
