    Have a nice Blue Monday!

  12. Great Haiku! Such an eerie feel to it.

  13. And nothing is ever wasted, though we think so from the outside.

  14. I actually feel that the mice can have his coat.. mice could have a good winter.

  15. What a haunting poem….some creatures, however, should use his coat…even if it is the mice.

  16. Sad thoughts at first but it is reality and life moves on even for the smallest of critters.

  17. A chilling haiku! What a picturesque, unique photo.

  18. What a very cool image. I dont know how you keep coming up with such original ideas, but am always so happy to read them.

  19. Well the dead man needs the coat no more, go to it mice!

  20. an eerie bleakness here…well expressed…

  21. Such a neatly woven piece..i can’t help but feel the mice will strip his coat to a single thread such is the indifference of many in this world…

  22. A resonance of decay in your haiku, nice one

    Much love…

    excellently written!
