February 2nd is Imbolic or Groundhog Day if you prefer. It’s the half way point of winter. It’s a perfect time to start thinking about spring whether it’s going to be early or another full six weeks of wintery weather.
For Real Toads, the Sunday Mini Challenge is to write a Cinquain. It’s a 5-line poem with a syllable count of 2, 4, 6, 8, 2. It’s often about nature, uses imagery and has a twist at the end. It also needs a strong title.

Deep beneath earth’s deathly white shroud
For Haiku Heights, the theme this week is Pride.
foolish winter’s pride
sunshine chases cold away
promise of spring near
