April Haiku #3746

Updated on April 7, 2017

My wheels keep turning

missing their grip on the ice

my tractions but gone


freedom of snowflake

as it wanders through the sky

lost in common drift


my footsteps linger

in the freshly fallen white

disappear quickly


older brothers tired

fall from the weight of the snow

listlessly to ground


winter to humble

to keep secrets in layers

frozen in deep frost


movement may have slowed

life in ice to a cold crawl

but movement is there

        No such problems here; here we slog through mud for six months...your next haiku can be about mud-sloshing. :)
