A Winter Haiku

Snow is just a mask 
Regenerating earths face.
A special peeling.

Written by Brenda Meier-Hans 

Details | Haiku | |

Snow-snow-snow everywhere-w

A man made of snow
Some kids gave him candle and wick
Turned to H2O

Snowflakes dance and wave
Like my Christmas memories
Unique but soon gone

Frosty wind made moan
And earth stood as hard as steel…
Snow on snow on snow.

Advice is like snow
Falls softer but dwells longer
Sinks deeper in mind

Snowflakes fragile things
But just look what they can do
When they stick together.

Fifty two snow names
Important for Eskimo 
As many for love.

Haiku X 22 - Winter X 4

        1.          White silver crystals
                     winter coat over a garden bench
                     Summer dreams

        2.         Outside the window
                    the virgin untouched purity
                    the snow is here


        3.         Angels in the snow
                    White crystals flashes
                    The children excited

        4.         Blue gray clouds
                    Yellow ring around the moon
                    More snow coming

White powdery wisps

Instead of the morning dew...

Winter's Wonderland

       * * *


Walking past the park

Wings made with childlike passion

Angelic Image

       * * *


Whitened droplets

Falling from gray clouds above

Catch one on your tongue

        * * * 


White covers the ground

Trouble starting the blower

Shovel time...again

       * * *


Chilled air on glass

Panes painted with icy hues

Scenes from Jack's palette.

No Wonderland Winter

(just felt like doing it "blues" style!)

Snowflakes/Snow Snow Snow

falling on my “pane”
first snowflakes of the season. . . 
and more on the way


a tiny snowball   
once it gets started rolling. . .  
it’s all-consuming

Jack Frost

near frosty windows
beaming carolers smiling. . .
but they don’t know jack

Snow Angel

lying in cold snow
arms out, moving up and down. .  .
signaling angels

Wind Snow Seagulls

Wind howling forlorn
thundering through the tree tops
branches crashing down

Snow swirling, whirling
coating all in pristine white
like diamonds glinting

Hear the lonely shrieks          
as seagulls twist and hover
over the fishing boats

haiku 26

the melting snow sits
on the remnants of green lawn --
the smell of smoke 

Andrea D. Suggested the following changes

the snow melts
on the remnant of green lawn --
the smell of smoke

Chris A. Suggests some of the articles be removed

snow melts
on remnants of green lawn --
the smell of smoke

Rueben O. has made a valid comment too regarding the word remnant.
Jack Kerouac once said that haiku should be as simple as porridge and 
the word remnant is is a word best used in free verse.

As to whether it's Spring or early Winter I think the smell of smoke
shows nicely that folks have lit their fireplaces BUT I'm open to suggestion.

the snow melts
above patches of green grass --
chimney smoke

 Rueben now we have come  to the end of my desire to tinker ;)
Line 3 as it stands was MY Ahaa moment seeing how the cold and the heat
both occur in beauty simultaneously BUT my AhhhHA! may be your [so what]
that's fine..and it is GOOD to point out the fragmented line is tthe hardest to excell is the line where without [telling] by [showing] the poet tries to
communicate how they felt in awe....

*This is how folks work on a haiku :)

Snow and The Pine Tree

Snow and The Pine Tree

Snowy white pine tree
beneath the palest blue sky
firmly stands waiting

for the sun to shine
as he softly kiss the snow
before letting go

time to part has come
thawing has arrived for the snow
but her touch lingers

her memory lives
in the heart of the pine tree
winter world of love

sweet and gentle snow
slowly melts under the sun
her fingers slipping

its time for the spring
to dance with the pine tree
till she comes again

Details | Haiku | |


gentle comes the snow
wafting cool kisses of white
on my outstretched tongue

A Collection of Winter Haiku's

snow falling softly
clothing all the world in white
drifting aimlessly

arctic snow flurries
sweep across the barren lands
settling in drifts

ice glistening bright
vast expanse over the lake
now here until spring

icicles dangling
glittering silver droplets
slowly they will melt

slush everywhere slush
left behind by melting snow
land now watery

Snowflakes swirling down
blanketing with ice crystals
shrouding  all in white

Reynard Tracks

parallel tracks in fresh snow - a Reynard
Male foxes are known as dogs or Reynards, females as vixens, and young as kits, pups or cubs. A group of foxes is a "skulk", "leash", "troop" or "earth". Please see the About section for the photograph which had sparked a lively discussion what animal had made these tracks. It was stated that foxes leave tracks in a single file and the double line of tracks had thrown most people off the scent.... My contribution to the discussion: "Yes, it looks as if it might be the same animal, traveling in both directions - if you look at the slant of the indentations of the two tracks..."

Four Snowflakes

Four Snowflakes
One little snowflake    
hits the river so gently    
then gone forever.
One lonely snowflake
descends into the river
nevermore to roam.
One cold white snowflake
comes flying in the windstorm
adding to the load.
The last snowflake falls    
making chills that last too long    
settling on his grave.

Old Snow

old snow still lays white
crusted in ice yet hollow
treacherous stepping

Interruption of Tranquility

Snowflake drifts, curling	
Drafts, like angry words, cut
Blinding white dazzles bright.

Mounds of Snow

The snow capped mountains,
Beautiful snow formations;
Pristine white landscapes.

Head in the Sand

Lake-effect snow watch
Not what I was hoping for
I think I'll sleep in

walking my two dogs
in a rare southern snowstorm

desert snow

a new this feeling
rare view aroma in there
in the desert snow
