Keep smiling, polona.

This Indian summer has two meanings, I read, but mostly used that 'warmer' version of it. (This is to certify that I am reading my big Webster...) As always, I also read this word 'Indian' alone as Navajo, (code talkers!) or Apache...

Geronimo? No?

But again, it is over there, a kigo-word! (2 x summer) So it's a haiku!

That's enough!

Ps. Seen today some snow!
