Heating Up Winter - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

heating up winter
the cold fails
to freeze my muse.
haiku falls like snow.
the snowman puts on flab.
stream offers a shortcut home
and the laundrette
buys new scale to weigh the season.
animal lovers heat up our heart
with rage against killers
of snow white bears, seals
and whales
the little furry toys we helplessly cuddle
in our living room
my heart skipped many beats as i saw blood
trail innocent white.

    concern for all living creatures
    so evident
    and I'm glad you took the time
    to express your wonderful feelings
    good work
