ivory trees

dressed by winter's hand
glistening within sunlight
trees of ivory
swaying branches in the wind
whispers of white cascade down


Details | Tanka |


High winds churl, howling
calling forth their minions
open wide the gates
the battle will be long, fierce!
through the mountains, hills and vales

Cold Winter Is Here

 Cold   winter is here  
 Radiant   snow   covered   ground  

 Desiccated   air  

 Candy   cane   fragrant   aroma  

 Winter bringing out the best

The Snow is Gone

 The sun rises up
 and melts the favored snow sheets 
 children's cries burst out 
 wishing it wouldn't leave yet
 but soon it will come once more

my god! i‘m housebound
another sip of coffee
outside?      Imagine 
it’s fourteen below zero
I’m tiptoeing through the snow

squirrels are watching me
birds with feathers all fluffed out
barefooted      i sink,
touch feet on the icy ground
god no!     rather be housebound

First Frost

Feathered friends flee frost
as first flurries flip and flop.
Floating, flying flock
of fair geese transform fading
fall days in fixed formation.

On the Edge of a Dream

scent of virgin snow
bathing the night in silence
     my daughter’s footsteps
          echoing on dream’s frayed edge
a yearning heart constricting

I dedicate this to my daughter who is working and living in the UK. Snow scenes always remind me of her and I long to see and hold her again.

Früher Schnee/ Early Snow/ Temprano nieve

Zu früh gefallen
Der Schnee auf den Bergspitzen
Verhüllt schon das Grün

Der Rauhreif in den Tälern
Bote des frühen Winters


Too early fallen
The snow on the mountain peaks
Already covers the green

The hoar-frost in the valleys
Messenger of early winter


Demasiado temprano caído
Nieve en picos de montañas
Ya cubre el verde

La escarcha en los valles
Mensajero de temprano invierno

I dont know about this poem but here it is:

When snow falls softly
You can make some cold snowballs
Try making some snowballs
Snowballs can be delicate
Sometimes they can be quite cold.

Please post with ideas to fix it..

Winter tanka

Snow falling slowly
Covering the earth in white
Snowflakes thus whirling
Gracefully encouraging
Veiling and dancing in light
