Lamentation Twenty Seven

The Icecutters' Lament: A Hiceku

Thick ice, very cold.
Very thick ice hard to cut
and we're cold. Very.

The picture above, (The Ice Cutters, 1911, Natalia Goncharova) is Tess Kincaid's prompt for Mag 198


  1. a haiku
    so very very cool
    ice is nice

  2. Hiceku ... oh how clever you are!!!

  3. Incorrigible. How can a man so witty be so gloomy?

  4. Beautiful mickey-taking out of writers who imagine they know what "Haiku" is. (Wendy Cope is good at it, too. Google her.)

  5. A Hiceku.....still grinning. Brilliant.

  6. Smiles :)

    Cut ice brick
    do very quick cos chilblains
    are itchy

  7. I recognise a great accompaniment when ice see one. Hope to see you back 'pieing' soon!


I welcome your comments, the gloomier the better. I don't think there's much hope, but that doesn't mean I'm not interested in what you have to say. If you expect me to approve your comment before it appears, you're about to be disappointed. Never have understood why some hypersensitive bloggers need to see what others say before they allow the comment. Poor, sensitive wee souls.
