still hold last year's fruit...

It has been a long time since I wrote this poem, but it is one of my most favorite among those I have written in this century. (I may write another to this prompt, but for now I could not resist the repetition.)

Gift your muse quill pens
and bid her feathers whisper
love to your belovèd

Slurpee waves | Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 390

winter surfboard rides  
on the ocean's slushy crests
blending season joys

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 390 BLEND and Slush.

The inspiration for the haiku comes from Nantucket’s Waves Are Turning to Slush in Extreme Cold by Zain Haidar (February 27, 2015 on The Weather Channel).
