sunday verses #14

3 MORE HAIKU 


Framing seasons three
Winter starts and ends the year
Annual bookends

***

A breath of warm air
She comes around the mountain
Chase Winter away

***

She pushes forth life
Her pungent verdant bower
Earth's labour's give birth

SUNDAY VERSES #13

3 WINTER HAIKU

Winter ice on trees
glitters like festive tinsel
under morning sun

***

When days are shorter
fiercely blows the winter wind
piling snow in drifts

***

Frigid air on skin
Persistent chill burrows deep
Winter wet and cold
