Haiku to Edit 1

Global Haiku • Millikin University • Spring 2010


clear and thick
the ice supports
my fall



dangerous storm
we hide for cover
find love



snowfall in the forest
a white blanket covers
sleeping trees


worn ski tracks
many powdery paths
fading quickly

playground gym
catching snowflakes
on her tongue



snow beneath my shoes
feel it through my soles
no boots


snowfall seizes
the still silence succeeds
to sedate me

snow day
building a snowman in the backyard



tangled ice skates
her sprawled out body
illuminated in the rink


quiet landings
snowflakes gather
in the night

sizzling square patties
grand opening
makes the cold wait hotter



passes away
replaced by storm clouds



backyard swing
red spot
on a cheek
