More Winter Haikus

Cloudy Day Haiku

Gray clouds hide the sun

Makes us crave light, warmth and hope

For an early spring.

 

Frosted Boughs

Snow frosts the branches

In bright glittering crystal—

Diamond gloves for trees.

 

Life Below the Pond

Our ice-covered pond

Hides the life deep in the mud

That swims up in spring.

 

Sleeping Cat in a Warm House

They find the heat, cats—

Beds, blankets, and sunlit shelves

Their comfort comes first.

 

Hot Soup

Hot soup cheers and warms

Both heart, soul, stomach and hands—

Comfort in a cup.

    These are all beautiful, but somehow, “Life Below the Pond” and “Hot Soup” really grab!

    Thanks, Pam! We’ve been eating a lot of soup lately, and it really does make winter warmer. Don’t know how the critters sleeping below the pond are…..but we’ll see them in the Spring!
