in quiet chaos
Issue 16.2 | 13 January 2017
Meik, just lovely.
This captures what it is like to be snowed in by a harsh storm when there is snow everywhere and the streets are empty.
__ The memory of gazing outward through our darkened window; the snow flakes and people chaos. So well felt within your nifty verse, Meik_!
as we light our candle
The narrator in this haiku seems quite happy to be taken away from the city's chaos. :)
Living in a moderate climate (in the shelter of the Mourne Mountains on the east coast of Northern Ireland) it is hard to imagine being snowed in, as we rarely experience extremes in temperature.
Wonderful haiku, the city reimagined with snow, and a little like Dr Zhivago and the Ice Palace.
