Winter Haiku





White fluff
covers the wrinkles
night falls early


flash of sun
bounces off the snow
highlights crow



tree limbs
shake dry snow in white outs
gather more



One Single Impression prompts with 'A Winter's Day'
by Geraldine of My Poetic Path

The photo is from early last winter - can't see anything out there now - over four feet of snow and still falling.

Merry Christmas!

I like the highlighted crow particularly!

Deborah Godin said...

I love the crow, too. Really can feel the chill in your words - we just had a bit of a blowy whiteout here, too.

A Very Merry Christmas!
for the picturesque poems-many thanks..

Oh, yes! I love that crow. He is the Sentinel of Weather. We know when the snow stops and starts even if our eyes are closed, thanks to him.

God bless, and merry Christmas.

Great, as always - and the picture cracked me up :-)

Love your series - I keep thinking I will do one too but I always stop at one!

Have to echo the others; that middle one is a gem. These words seem to be doing a jig despite the snow. Merry Christmas to you and yours from your eastern neighbor.

Loved all three of your haiku and laughed myself silly at the photograph. Methinks I spent too long on Christmas cards today and NEED to unwind ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

i've always loved how snow so eloquently hides the "wrinkles"!

Dave King said...

I fell madly for the first one.

spacedlaw said...

I love the first one best too.

For some reason, the last one really came to life for me and had me saying, "Ah, yes."

enjoyed your little signs on this rainy rainy California winter day!

Jim said...

Oh dear, good for the skiers I guess. While I was staying warm you were feeling the cold.
We did have from two to four inches of snow in the Houston area a couple of weeks ago but none up here to stay on the ground only fifty miles away to the north.
I hope your Christmas was merry and that you holidays will be 'bright.'
