Carpe Diem's "Only the First Line" #4

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Another nice episode of this Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Special "Only The First Line", in which the goal is to write a new haiku which starts with the first line I give. I have searched for a new "First Line" and came up with this one:

Ice Flowers

"blooming ice flowers"

So the goal of this episode is to write a new haiku starting with the line given "blooming Ice Flowers" not an easy task, but ... well it's a challenge and a challenge is not always easy (smiles). And to make this somewhat more like a challenge you have to write your haiku in the classical 5-7-5 syllables way.

Of course I have tried it myself. Here is my attempt to write a haiku starting with the line "blooming Ice Flowers".

painted in this stone cold night
on bedroom window

This episode of "Only the First Line" is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until February 22th 11.59 AM (CET).
Have fun, be inspired and share your haiku with us all here at our Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Special.
