Early morning deep freeze–
Groundhog Phil saw what?
Shadow?  No shadow?  Who knows?
Seems like Narnia to me.

This is technically not a “happiness” haiku today!  hah!  More like a weather commentary, I guess.

The form is 57577: a Tanka.

From ehow:  A traditional poetic form of Japanese origin, the Tanka consists of a single five-line stanza, with no rhyme scheme and a defined syllabic verse pattern of 5-7-5-7-7.
