  1. I feel very up close to the plant & the individual crystals. Appreciations for this beautiful duo.

  2. Icy power, thawing possibility. Lovely.

  3. Wow! This is a beautiful combination of image and word.

    Your haiga is fabulous! I like the way you were able to capture the granular feel of the snow in the photo. It makes me want to toss my old iPhone/camera in the trash!

  5. mbhmaine says:

    I love the contrast of the plant and the ice. Winter offers such fabulous opportunities–both visual and written!

  6. Lovely succulents–keep going. “escaping words” wonder where they are off too. You’ve paired three strong elements all together ice, succulents and words, thanks for this beautiful succinct haiku Jone!

    Go succulents (and dandelions)!! Hooray for the strength found in the commoners!

    Hard to believe it can still be green, Jone. You take such gorgeous pictures, and pair them so well with your words. I love the “words escape”.

  9. Leigh Anne Eck says:

    This is a perfect pairing with Brenda’s Winter Dandelion! Stay warm!

  10. I love those hardy succulents defying that ice. I think words are the only things escaping the frigid wind and snow here in the northeast! Happy New Year to you, Jone!

    Oh, yes. This is a stunning photo and paired beautifully with your poem. Please sign off on this one with your location, Jone, and send it to #WinterWonderland18❄️ and me for the winter gallery. This is a keeper.

  12. What Linda said. Succulents are tough cookies, aren’t they?

  13. Mmmmm … those words WITH that photo!

  14. what a gorgeous pairing of text and photo. Beautiful.
