Snow Haiku

Amid the winter's snow

Three Haiku on the present snow.


Black sky spangled sparky bright,ice cold.

She glides over the lake

Silver iron leaving in her silent wake.


Snowflakes falling on the lake

Tiny silver crystals formed like stellar plates

It’s a wander of nature clean and pure


Silently falls the snow coating Rome white

Deadening  city sound at night

Not been seen for twenty five years.

        Willow, I saw it on the news, about your first snow there! And here, ours is all melted and it hit a record 63 degrees today. Felt like spring! (Of course it freezes at night, but….)
        Anyway, hope you’re staying warm and cozy! 🙂

    Wonderful celebration of snowfall for you. Very lyrical and rhythmical in a way that sort of imitates the snowflakes falling and the increasing hush over this place. Kudos, dear Willowdot!

    This is beautiful…
    I ponder on gone for 25 years,
    so there is a mystery 😉
    all in all lovely.
    I am drawn in by the graphic too!

      Thank you Raven of Leyla I am grateful for your kind words. the mystery you ponder is “Not been seen for twenty five years.” I was watching the news ( unusual for me) but the “and finally” story was that it was snowing in Italy , snow falling in Rome the first time for 25yrs. I hope that has not shattered any illusions. I try to use graphics that fit the poems, it can take ages.
