Haiku to you Thursday: “Half moon waiting”

Waiting

Waiting

Reaching for the stars /

he found a half moon waiting /

at the bare limb’s edge.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Cheap soles”

Troubling questions /

crunched under trampling footsteps. /

Cheap soles speaking lies.

Photo finish Friday: “Arrival”

First snow

First snow

First snow came to visit today. /
Did you come from far away? /
Drifting softly from gray clouds, /
Landing where the cold allowed. /
You came to rest upon my glider. /
Was that your plan, your desire? /
How long do you think you will stay? /
Can I touch you, use you like clay? /
Mold a snowball or a snowman, /
I’m not sure yet what is my plan. /
Will more snow be coming soon? /
Falling by the light of the moon. /
Drifting down and all around, /
Landing without making a sound. /
Yes, first snow came today, /
But I know you will not stay. /
The sun too soon will replace the moon /
And sweep you away like a big, yellow broom.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Remains”

Between what is said /

and what is done /

is that which remains.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Winter kindness”

Winter’s kindness /

begets Spring’s regret and leaves /

darkness for my love.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Santa say”

For footfalls in the snow, /

you wait like a five-year-old. /

What would Santa say? /

Haiku to you Thursday: “Glisten”

Upon the brown grass /

glistens winter’s translucence, /

refracting wonder. /
