winter haikus

cold water crackles

where the bushes hit the creek
the magic of ice

Swimmers go indoors
Boats have been stored somewhere else
winter dormancy
The snow piles up
white and fluffy but so cold
needing some color

On a quiet street,
the snow serves as a blanket.
hibernation time.

Snow on tree branches
glitters in the cold sunlight
magic of winter

bare tree limbs point up
to a sky devoid of warmth
winter dormancy

  1. Of all the haikus, I enjoyed the first one the most. I could hear the crackling in my mind. I also liked you taking all your posted pictures in black and white, a most underutilized technique (and one I don't use enough, myself.)

  2. Especially enjoyed the first and last photos and haiku. Black and white format really highlights the wintriness of the pictures.
