Trying to pass boredom and the lull as Winter Vacation approaches and also fulfill my half of the bulletin board decorations.

Perhaps even more popular or parodied in American culture, these quintessentially Japanese poems a typically written to coincide with the season. It’s yet to feel quite like any winter I’ve experienced, so I created a couple to get in the festive mood.
