Haiku on a glacier at dawn: winter dreaming

Glacial blue dawn;
Slender pink whiskers of warmth
touch frozen ruins

Icebergs sailing by
scatter rubble in their wake;
Sharp winds cleave hard rock

Jagged shards melting
slowly in shallow sunbeams;
Chill pebble strewn pools

Icy continents; 
Light glancing on still waters
mirrors frosted skies

Long days and short nights; 
Winter rules this citadel
in crisp white mantle

    This is a beautiful poem made up of 5 amazing Haikus. Keep writing! I write mostly Haiku and also prose poems. You are reppin' Papau, New Guniea and you are a good African poet. Happy New Year to you...
