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.

haiku-2525

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
