  2. Hey, no fair – you made me work for this one. Never heard the word doonas before and I had to google the meaning and then reread your Haiku. NOW, I totally enjoyed the picture you painted with the words.
    Thanks for a new word in my vocabulary! Tonight I shall shroud myself in my own doona!

      We’ve ended up having a beautiful day today but the last couple were ridiculous!

  4. That chill in the bones that just won’t go away.

  5. I missed this one! Very nice haiku. Cold!

      It was crazy cold! We’re in spring but it snowed again in the mountains west of Sydney for two days!
