Frog kingdom silence,

Swollen marsh gently ripples,

April snow flying.

Patience frays

veiled feelings exposed

truth comes out.

Frozen mantle frays

secret dormant life awakes

nourished by spring light.


These three haiku are inspired by recent days in a Northern spring (44.3° N).  The second and third incorporate prompt words from Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge #91: ‘fray’ & ‘veiled’ (secret=veiled).  Please follow the link if you have the urge to read more haiku or to write your own haiku poetry.

    1. A horror movie perhaps? (Not horror from snow but something frightening enough to render the frogs silent) I always think of marshes as frog kingdoms or cities–so much sound rises out of them–I imagine thousands of frogs going about their lives.
