I can't seem to stop writing poetry or reading poetry. I think it is safe to say I love poetry and I love sharing great poetry with others.

April Haiku # 0909

The white of my roof

combines with the white of sky

a Gesso canvas

Home painted off white

the veins of distant tree branch

on my sight settle

Here snow lies again

our life becomes slippery

and fragile and cold

Shovel hit pavement

again after a long wait

need to clear a path

White castles of frost

thick inches of the white snow

to remind my toes

Purple returns slow

a new morning brings color

as white turns to blue

Let the melt begin

moisture filling Winter's space

a lost hidden Spring

White clouds drift away

over the sage of Peavine

through our calm valley.

        Jamie, these Haiku are so inspiring! They are wonderful snapshots in themselves, and also join with the others to paint a picture of Winter transitioning into Spring. Love them. Thank you!

        What a beautiful picture this conjures up, Jamie. I love snow, as long as I don't have to drive in it!

        Lovely my friend, although the thought of snow now slightly depresses me. :)

        Beautiful poetry, Jamie. I love the way you decribe everything to be white giving the impression of heavy winter when it all starts to melt, regaining their original colors. The image is lovely too. Thanks for sharing.
