And then it snows!

HAIKU

Pine needle carpets

embrace the cold forest floor

before the first snow

Whoops!

WINTER WOE

Today it’s very cold outside
Drippy nose
Frozen toes
Weather’s right for a nice sled ride
Cough and wheeze
Great big sneeze
Snow-fun beckoned, and so I tried
Slipped and fell
Painful yell
Bruised my body and my pride
Home in bed
Bandaged head
Tomorrow I will stay inside

November

WINTER CURSE

When harvest days are over
And leaves have left the trees
November blows her cold breath
And we all cough and wheeze

Fall’s great masterpiece

wiped from nature’s huge canvas

winter’s quick cold hand

Haiku for Fall

HAIKU

Brittle umber leaves

       pirouette to the cold ground

              in their dance of death

    SAD OLD SCARECROW


 


Sad old scarecrow, tattered and torn                    


I think I heard him cry,


or did the wind just sigh?


No wonder poor thing’s so forlorn —


no duty to uphold,                    


he shivers in the cold,


in summer clothes he’s always worn

A Haiku for April

HAIKU

 

April’s big surprise

 

        icicled birdhouse shivers

 

                  blue eggs, marble cold
