Love the haiku and the pictures - that drystone wall could be in Derbyshire, so could the rest of the scene apart from the snow:)

Rel, that's a wonderful haiku, with a double entendre for good measure - and two photos. Very well done!

What a creative take on the theme, plus you made me look up a new word. Loam is my word of the week ;) Great pictures between your earthy haiku.

I have seen cemetaries and I've seen snow, but never at the same time.

I love winter pics...if I was a painter I would paint all winter scenes. Speaking of winter....the buzz is we are getting 4 inches....Im sure they are talking about snow.

Earth, dirt, mud...isn't that a kid's idea of heaven? Especially a boy kid!

I think it's about time you had spring...all these snow photos from northern hemisphere bloggers...brrrr!

I'm finally here for a catch up session! Actually, I have been readig all of your wonderful writing of late, but every time I was about to leave a comment, the phone would ring. Bizarre! It's switched to voice mail now, though, so no chance of an interruption this time. :)

I've always enjoyed your writing, dear man, but it just keeps getting better and better as each week goes by. You're truly talented, and I'm so glad that you're sharing your talents with us. It's always a treat to come over here and read your latest thoughts. :)

Have a wonderful rest of the week!

Hi, Rel...I'm trying to do a bit of 'catch-up'...I've been very busy this week...that's my excuse and I know it's not good enough! ;)

The pretty pic of the stone wall in winter almost makes me like winter. On second thought, naaaaahhhhh.
