winter sprinkles

snow

dust

sprinkles

sifted bright

whiten winter gloom

lift our hearts with sugar and light

Lately, forest, field and roadsides around here have been lightly dusted with snow.

This weekend Chevrefeuille of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai challenged us to write a winter themed Fibo-ku—a relative of the haiku in which syllable count is based on the Fibonacci sequence.<<

Flash

A murmuration of starlings

fills cloud burdened sky

in a flash performance

Its  speckled phantom shape

twirls, unfurls

dips and turns

over there

now here

and gone

leaving smiles and

windshield signs

Lavender

Trekking down to the compost bin in the pre-winter landscape I encounter tiny branches of thyme and lavender—remaining where all else has withered. I bow, remember this summer, the succession of wildflowers, such joy!

passion here
days before snowfall
sweet-scented stems
