Linking to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai with “cherry petals” kigo challenge…


cherry petals float

gentle from tree to kiss earth

scent of pink snowflakes

snow diamonds gliTTer in sunshine

icicle daGGers dangle from rOOf edge

pungent scent distiLLs from pine boughs

haPPy laughter sleDDing down big hiLL

soft faux fur hOOd brushes rosy chEEks

snowflakes sprinkle on kniTTed miTTen

cold hands caRReSS warm bowl of hot chili






weather…or not

A poem for the child in all of us ūüôā


when winds blow mean

snowflakes scream

as they downstream fastimages


when no winds niggle

snowflakes giggle

as they squiggle past

Concertino – Germaine Tailleferre

Carpe Diem Haiku Kai’s December theme, Let the Music Inspire You

december snowflakes

floating past, catch on warm tongue

flurries dissipate

winter’s secret joy

expecting new grandchildren

love’s art develops


every snowflake is unique

each design original


Linking with other haiku poets at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai today.

walking into winter


gentle snowflakes

falling into fluffiness

nature’s soft blanket
