Haiku - The Almighty Sun

Updated on March 24, 2017
Source

These are haiku about the sun, the all-powerful sun chasing winter cold, melting ice and snow, making way for spring to dawn. The winter cold ends, and spring begins. Is winter fearing the sun?

sun shining thawing

engulfing snow melting ice

winter swift takes flight


in fear of sun rays

winter gathers ice and snow

disappears in haste


spring breezes through earth

spreading fragrance uplifting

spirit of nature

        Nithya,

        These haikus are gems in a necklace, however, the last one, the pendent, is so beautiful.
