Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 276 Smoke / Water
Pond water thawing
on ice that froze winter white
– frost smoke drifts in sun
Haiku/Senryu Challenge (10/21/19)
Sundogs glowing at -10 degrees below zero (Fahrenheit) this morning over my home.
crisp blue skies framing
ice-covered prairie daybreak
sundogs mark the dawn
Ice crystal meadows
mimic distant windy lakes
As the temperatures hover near 20 below, I snuggle by my fireplace and think of summer’s glow.
surrounded by cold
white-winged snowfinch fluffs feathers
eyes closed fast asleep
during winter storm
icy snow torn from its banks
-nature’s throw pillows
winters whitest ice
burns all the flesh it touches
without yellow flame
My third post! 40-50 mph winds blowing on the plains today, can’t see beyond the yard. Fireplace burns and cat is in my lap!
howling winter wind
carved furrows of dirt and ice
hot chocolate poured
Revised version – Thanks Lynn
howling winter winds
dance on fields of soil and ice
stirred my cocoa mug
The red fox is bold
in hunger driven daring
–Tempting winter ice
Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 178 Bold / Daring
Prompt words: Bold & Daring
Haiku in 5-7-5
A simple piece of granite in my front yard
Recently taken, positioned, and left for display.
Just one of many uprooted by a steel plow,
Lifted from the soil, collected, then moved away.
Eons of memory, long captured in the ground,
Deposited by glaciers and raised by winter ice.
Earth knew of your journey, the endless struggle below,
Summer’s thunder rumbled, lightning crackling advice.
A quiet commemoration now placed in the sun,
A story from the ages touched by a hybrid rose.
Positioned on a long green boulevard,
Example of perseverance, God’s stonework exposed.
captured green checkers
witnessing action on ice
