winter cold snap -
he's still at batting practice
breaking ice

And what else can one say that the photo and words do not? In my town, they're already talking baseball. For some, quite exciting times. That 'breaking ice' brings up many pictures in my mind. Thanks!

You have an exquisite eye - the details from the shards of glass and that ball - so alive, I feel tiny pinpricks in my fingers! :) Thank you for sharing that haiku and the photo, Andi.

Hi, Andi. Great photo and poem. We've been having fun with "Haikubes" at our house, but it's good to have a limitless vocabulary (and an inspiring photograph) at your disposal.

Nice, Andi!

I love the multiple meanings of cold snap--I can hear the ice breaking and the ball pop off the bat during the break in the cold.

Baseball and breaking the ice. Resonates with the poem JPL sent for me to use this week. Jackie Robinson broke the ice and the boundaries and the prejudices...powerful stuff, baseball...

Ooh...as a baseball enthusiast this poem and photograph keep my hopes alive for a great new season sometime soon!

Winter and baseball are an unexpected pairing (to me, anyway) -- I love the photo/haiku combination! I think I've said this before...you take wonderful photos!

Such a cool photo, Andi. And the words say it all - a baseball player never stops! You always put together such perfect pairings. a.
