Falling Snow From Roof

by Chris MacDonald

snow_falling2This one really is like poetry.

“Falling Snow From Roof” sounds like a fragment of a normative haiku of the 5-7-5 (syllables) kind. A very Canadian haiku, that is.

I mean, it has to be poetry, since the more natural bit of prose would reverse the words “falling” and “snow.” “Caution: Snow Falling From Roof.” Or maybe it needs punctuation. “Falling snow! [From where?] From roof!”
