  1. The action (the sound of "my words") and reaction ([reflected] in "her eyes") under the full Moon in December, known for the long, cold nights.

    A frosty relationship is well depicted in this multi-sensorily evocative relationship haiku.

    And it might be interesting to do a thematic comparison reading of my haiku below:

    cold moon ...
    I want to touch her
    into words
