White powder icing
spread over the orchard limbs
-An April blizzard
Broken springtime promises
on an Easter Sunday morn

Last years fallen leaves
uncovered by melting snow

While walking beside a frozen marsh,
The sunrise reveals the world awakened.
Found some small paw prints, left from the night,
Recorded movements left frozen this morn.
Sunrise reflection pink crystalline frost,
Remnants of cornstalks on harvested field.
Seeds missed by combine’s sharp threshing machine,
Food for the pheasants that feed in the night.
Smoke from the farmyard drifts upwards this morn
White bones of ash trees cut up after storms.
Clouds on horizon threaten tonight
Temperature falling blizzard in sight
Home to black coffee brewed early morn
Crisp smoky bacon, eggs fried in a pan.
Wheat toast and jelly sweeten the morn
Simple life in country, so happy I’m here.
Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 273 Forest / Whisper
Chill whispers to me
through the fallen forest leaves
Winter’s time is here
See last touch of bright colors
Snow soon falls for a cover
Haiku/Senryu Challenge (9/30/19)
The yellow area predicting 25 -26.5 inches of snow is directly over my little town 😦
Late winter snowstorm
getting shoved right down my throat
so much for tulips!
savored daybreak ride
golden sun on frosty field
-easy over egg
Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 245 Easy / Ride
This winter’s snow piles
stashed around my farmyard lane
hold the springtime back
traveling in winter skies
rest on spring gardens
Despite deep white snow
I dream of a garden plot
-winter’s blank canvas
I’m gonna need a bigger shovel!
