The polar vortex / far from home, holds us tightly / in its icy grip.

The polar vortex / far from home, holds us tightly / in its icy grip. Haikumages

Twoku: Arctic air, chilling / reminder our degree of / tolerance is small.

Threeku: Jet stream neglecting / its duties, sagging, polar / vortex fills the void.

Brrrrrrr!!!!  Stay warm out there…

  1. I just love the phrase “polar vortex” — it seems like a lot could be done with it. Your timely haiku and photograph with the stark tree with the two shades of blue background, that is a stunner.

    • Yes, I love “polar vortex” too – it’s one of the great new phrases (although Al Roker traced it to old weather language, back in the 50’s?) coming out, when so many new words and phrases are pretty crappy… Funny, the internet blew up with it as I posted this one! Really glad you liked the ‘ku, and the photograph (one of my personal faves)…
