April Haiku #0909

My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I started sharing poetry articles back in 2013. Every year I share a poem a day in April.


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.
