April Haiku #2525

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.

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

Hey Bill...you can be glad you were not in Ohio today. .it snowed.

No snow in Houston this year, but I can relate to your poem easily because of having lived in Wisconsin. By April each year, we longed for the warmer days ahead, free of snow.

Audrey Hunt from Idyllwild Ca. on April 01, 2021:

So much snow this year. Your haikus perfectly describe my feelings. Very well done. Here's to spring and warm weather.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on April 01, 2021:

So happy to see Spring arrive. I think I would lose it if it snowed again here. lol I'm still working my way through your two books, and then I'll write a review. So far, what I've read I've loved.

Beautiful Haiku Jaimie! Well thought out and great discernment. You still seem to be 'burdened' with life. 'Poor' Temples we are. Ha-ha. Rich too, in so many inner ways! I would swear God has blessed your with extra fortitude. Chuckle. Good to see you, Bro. Say hello to all, even the dogs.

Ann Carr from SW England on April 01, 2021:

What superb haiku, Jamie! Good to see you, still on great form I see.
