Thank you so much!
I do enjoy writing these. I like how so few words can make a statement.
Thanks for reading.

Good haiku, Brenda. I find this form of poetry suits itself well to creating instant atmosphere and you've certainly done that.
BRENDA ARLEDGE (author) from Washington Court House on January 27, 2020:
Wow! Thank you so much.
I cannot imagine it being perfect, but I thank you for such kind words.
Have a wonderful day!
