Fine chill grey rain
On shoppers rushing past-
Inside, we are warm.

—Pete Hoyle

Here in Virginia we get little snow, so my image of Christmas shopping is not the traditional scene. Still, it works. I hope the haiku gives the idea.

    mundane gray day
    carolers singing ...
    the joys of the season

    lonely winter
    the discomforting warmth as i
    watch a couple hug

    brushing against my skin
    cool night air -

    silent dance of the leaves
