The Seasons - Rhyming Haiku

icy kiss of death frozen on sweet autumn’s breast winter’s frosty breath frozen crystal spears melting in a thousand tears joyful spring is here what were buds on trees live there dreams in lush green leaves kissed by summer breeze life begins to wane summer bursting into flames autumn’s sweet refrain ~~~ Author: Elaine Cecelia George, of Canada Written: march 1, 2011 For: Carol Brown’s Nature Rhyming Haiku contest. Awarded: First Place

Hi, James. It was originally suggested by Carol Brown and I won her contest with this. I don't know if she made it her form or not. I do however, think it would be a wonderful form.
