Sitting alone in the woods

Crafted by skilled hands


Sitting on a log

Haiku – 3 Looks at Ice

Soft winter snowfall

Ice crystals of all sizes

Falling from the sky


Sitting in the sand

Mixed drink filled up with crushed ice

Pure relaxation


Kneeling on one knee

Diamond the color of ice

Hoping for a yes
