November 2015 Free format short poem

warmly lighted
evening window -
cooling street

November 2015 Free format short poem was EVENING WINDOW

(My text built by word cool.)

November Kigo

heading sunwards -
melting wings

Bird? Snowbird is a human, traveling from freezing North Southwards.
My mother-in-law was a snowbird, she flew every autumn to Portugal, where she hired an apartemento. When sun again up and warmer in Finland she returned home...

Also everyone will remember Icarus.

That's why I did not sent that into Shikimontly...
