that ain’t a skull
winter’s end

Edited in GIMP but with one of the fonts familiar from Snapseed, Raleway. With the pressure to conserve syllables in modern haiku, I wonder why more haijin don’t use ain’t instead of isn’t.

On an unrelated note: Having decided back in January to start sharing my haibun videos here, I promptly forgot again. So maybe that’s a sign; I dunno. Anyway, for those who missed them, here are the two latest at Via Negativa: Winter Den and 55.
