Haiku funnies

A friend (who lives in warmer climes) and I occasionally trade wisecracking haiku when we're both plagued with insomnia. Here are a few I managed to save from twitter. Enjoy.

He gloats about warmth  
while the climate obliges.
Got a wool sweater?

The sky is still pink  
silently blanketing us
even blizzards tire.

Arizona spring
breezy, sunny, and some mist
but, cold and orange!

Your altiplano
discourages gardening;
it's not very warm.

June nights in Flagstaff
I shivered at altitude.
You call this Summer?

I prefer my snows
to the false summer promise
of Arizona!
