Winter alone chills
Orchard debris piled high
Tired smoke rises

This brings back childhood memories for me... I can still see that smoke rising... sparked by your lovely haiku and image...

That smoke may be tired, but if it's from apple wood, it's also fragrant!

Is that smoke tired of winter? of cold? I think that the wood of fruit trees is some of the finest...beautiful sentiments!
