Winter of Hope - Haiku/Senryu

Rinita is a creative writer, with focus on poetry. She delves into several forms including Haiku/Senryu, Sonnets, Free Verse, and Prose.


We are deep into the cold season in the northern hemisphere, and in some ways winter could be harsh. However, there is always hope that the chilly days will end soon, and spring will arrive with its newborn beauty. A short depiction of these thoughts is what makes this Haiku/Senryu collection.

Bloom of Hope

Bloom of Hope


Piercing breeze a tune

Singing softly 'surrender'

Blue feet give away

Maple o'er yonder

Shed the goodbye foliage

Frozen tearful lake

Delayed, dimly dawns

Crimson adieu crawling dusks

Lone stars light long nights

Firewood sans decay

Warmth of palms hovering 'round

Chilled dime, broken mug

Settling to the tune

Of white, skip the eyes a beat

Oh, look! Crocus blooms
