Midwinter Haiku

Signs written in snow

Calligrapher sharpens her brush

Run Dharma painter!

Hmmm, guess it sorta falls within the guidelines. 5-7-5, seventeen in total. Basho would probably approve, you're implying the season of the year.
Kawabata, ca 1920's:

A drop of dew

an ant recedes from it


In glimmer of moon

scars of deep snow

cannot be hidden
