This classic kigo was a challenge for me. I think in the classic kigo sense “spring” and “thin ice” are redundant.  In western mind perhaps they are not so apparently doubled. 

I also consider this a little too complex to be considered etegami (maybe not in the current state of new exploration going on with these forms). It still functions as a postcard although I have not posted it to the 19 Planets Cafepress shop. 

My response to the prompt “Usurai (thin ice)” for Carpe Diem ~ March 2013 prompts. The informative prompt and responses to this prompt can be found on the Carpe Diem a daily haiku meme Blog.
