Still cold, still snowing,
Still wearing my overcoat.
Whither April, Lord?

Sun rising thru mist
Hot e'en now in humid air
There's fruitcake tonight!



(My family makes fruitcakes every Christmas. My brother started a tradition some years back of freezing a few pieces then opening them on July 4th as a reminder of colder days and Christmas. The tradition is the flip side of opening that bottle of summer wine on a cold January night. If you detest fruitcake, that's fine. You can still appreciate the thought while leaving more fruitcake for me!)

The second mouse may get the cheese but the presentation leaves a lot to be desired.

Shall I take a coat?
Overheat? Cloudy, but hot...
Dogs get wet. No sweat!



Explanation: It's often overcast in Oldham on the wet side of the Pennines. It might rain, it might not. It can be hot, too. I walk the dogs twice a day. They often end up wet even when it doesn't rain. Rivers, ditches, you name it.

I think your haiku explained it all wonderfully. And with fewer words. :)

Steamy air shimmers;
Even the birds sound listless.
A storm is coming
