fresh snow
only chirps of robins
break the silence


a robin chirps!
not even blowing snow
will stop spring


I am linking these two haiku to Frank J Tassone’s Haikai Challenge: Snow.
As I wrote these poems I was also thinking about
Carpe Diem’s new Crossroads feature. For this feature we are invited to write a new haiku including elements of two given poems. Whether my haiku achieve this sufficiently I am not sure, but since they do borrow elements (words, tone, structure) I am providing the link so that if you are interested, you can read about the details and perhaps give it a try!

Snow globe world


no wind, no storm

disturbs the falling snow

this snow globe world


I laughed yesterday when I heard a radio host say “I feel like I’m living in a snow globe”.  He was confirming that snow will continue falling for the next few days. I too feel like I am living in a snow globe. I took the above photo while driving home and the image below, showing a snowman in a snow globe, is from Pixabay.
