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: snow hats

spring began, stuttered

winter rushed back, hanging on

dumped a cold white gift

my hat! it’s heavy

my neck bends low, ground view

where did the sun go?

we wait, hope for warmth

wrap our coat-leaves tight, shiver

dreaming of sunbeams

Haiku Moment: before, after

before, snow blankets

snowfall melts under sun’s smile

after, window holes
