Haiku: Return Of The Cold...

"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade." Charles Dicken

Haiku: Return Of The Cold...
 Huddled by the lake
Ice, like shards of glass, splinters...
Cold returns to  play

 
Today, the word is Return Of The Cold


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.'"

Haiku: Return Of The Cold...
A snowfall settles
Cold, wet white winter blankets
Steadily shuts down...

  26. Return of the cold may mean the not-so-good memories haunting us?

    The photos included are beautiful. Sometimes I wish I could experience snow but I know I won't like it.
