April Haiku #2525

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


Snow Haiku

though worn and weary

we carry ourselves through snow

our lives on our backs

after many days

of removal and walking

on feet not inches

newly fallen flakes

bury the world of the new

our dream goal stands still

white sky lies in bed

every time you close your eyes

breath the soothing cold

numb and slightly pink

cheeks are rubbed with chill finger

warmth through this friction

this cold work will end

where the fireplace is stoked

with slow burning wood

outside window lost

as if our homes are buried

preserved history

soon to be lost time

where white remains on the peaks

and soft on our lips
