HuMp DaY Haiku - On the Fence

Kitchen window view.
Rusty heart upon the fence
highlighted by snow.

I love this rusty heart my husband made, and love that he's put it on the grape stake fence  right where I can see it from the kitchen window. He hand split all the rails on our fence, which was added the year after we moved into the house. It's aged nicely. 
You can also see the duck whirly gig/weather vane (turns and flys when the wind blows) that his father made. 
Color me happy on this gray day. 

I started doing Hump Day Haiku with Carla Sonheim's Silly classes...  and decided as a challenge for myself, I'd continue.  In this process, I have found that creating a haiku (non rhyming poem with 5 - 7 - 5 syllables per line) feeds my soul. 
I especially like creating them to go with my photos. 

Would you like to share a haiku you have written? 

You may include a haiku in the comments, OR you may copy your blog post url (featuring a haiku) and add a link to your blog using Mr. Linky. And consider visiting other contributors blogs to say hello.
