Haiku Moment: land, hop, walk

land, pause, freeze, and look

what’s a bird to do? can’t move

winter’s sticky tape

hop, hop, hop-three jumps

and you are there, discover

snowy hidden treats

different bird tracks;

walk, waltz, snoop: toes in, toes out

winter hides the food


land, hop, walk

Haiku Moment: drafty

color splash welcomes

beacon against monotone

shelter-but drafty

Haiku Moment: breathe

dark broken by light

snow day, but no sleeping in

time to wander, breathe

Haiku Moment: the path

here or there, the path

sometimes smooth, other times rough-

love keeps us on track

Haiku Moment: tree people

daylight freezes them

and winter, but come August

tree people watch, play

Haiku Moment: face forward

flames claim the night sky

face forward, time to wake up

gold fades to day blue

ready for take-off

secure seat-back tables and

buckle up. Let’s go!
