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!

      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.
