Full snow moon
Show me Paradise
Before noon...

Dear snow moon
Did you just call me?
Let's have tea...

Haiku:  Full Snow Moon Plus Two...

Caterpillar Queen
Rejoice at the coming Spring
Soon, a butterfly...

From cocoon to free
Wings spread out majestically
Soon, a colony...
Today, the words are Full Snow Moon, Caterpillar, and Strangers

What is Carpe DiemBlog Owner, Kristjaan Panneman,  describes it as:  "a weblog on haiku. It's a new daily haiku meme where you can write a classical or non-classical haiku on a given prompt. Haiku is an ancient Japanese poetry form. A haiku has three short lines and describes a short moment (as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water). Mostly a haiku counts 5-7-5 syllables and is sometimes called 'counted verse.'"

 We are not strangers
Though we haven't met in person
Our hearts and souls have...
